Artist's Description

Vernon, France is a bit of a hidden treasure just 10 minutes drive from Giverny and the famous Monet’s Gardens. Vernon is filled with incredible middle ages architecture, as well as a vibrant feel.

The round tower in the rear is the only remaining part of the ancient Chateau-fort of Vernon. The tower is 22 meters high and was built in the 12th century. In the 18th century it was used for the town archives – hence its name!

The beautiful home in the foreground is on The Rue Potard, the oldest street in the town, dating back to the 12th century, possibly earlier. This street is a beautiful street of half-timber houses.In spite of the bombardment of 1940-44 that damaged the town center, Vernon has kept streets that seem to come straight out of the Middle Ages. Half timbered houses with ancient doors and carved timbers, shop signs in wrought iron, cobbled paths are of exceptional character and are a frequent sight throughout this charming town.

It’s a MUST see if you are in this part of France! Image taken with Canon EOS80D
