I usually avoid cities and crowds but when went to Thonon les Bains some weeks ago i had in mind to make pictures of some natural beaches and of the pier. So i left my car in the city and had a very nice (and long walk) along the lake.

Snapshots from Tournon sur Rhône

On our way to Ardèche plateau, we stopped in Tournon sur Rhône, an old city with very nice monuments along Rhône river which is here the limit between Drôme and Ardèche departments.
After an short walk in the streets, we spent a few hours visiting an interesting art exhibition in the local museum.

A closer view of Saint Claude with its cathedral and some old houses.
The cathedral is more than 8 centuries old and has a very long name : Cathédrale Saint Pierre, Saint Paul et Saint André.
The Maison du Peuple that you can see in the foreground is also an old building used today as a cinema. You can read more (in french) about its history here.

Corso Garibaldi is a big commercial and touristic street in Torino. This grey wall with the fashion ads gives a good feeling of this street in winter.
