A walk around the old town

Le Puy-en-Velay is not the most picturesque city I've seen, but it has plenty of interesting nooks and crannies to explore. We parked in a lot on the boulevard that circles the old town and walked in, and up, toward the cathedral.

A souvenir shop selling postcards, of course, along with lace and probably lentils, both products for which the city is known.

There were people around, but it was not crowded. That may be because we were there on a Thursday at around ten in the morning. People would have been at work or in school and not wandering the streets. I imagine that there are plenty of tourists in town in the summer months when the weather is good. While we were there, in March, the days were chilly and windy.
