A couple more

Here are views of a couple of the buildings near the cathedral in Le Puy. The first is a medieval tower, but I don't really know anything about it and my extensive lame research didn't turn up much.

A nicely maintained tower.

The second is a street shot of the colorful tile roofs on a church behind the cathedral. I think, if I'm not mistaken, that it's part of a larger institution called le Grand Séminaire Accueil Saint-Georges. It's a religious institution that welcomes and lodges pilgrims (historically) and general travelers (individually or in groups) for a modest fee.

So, I think that's pretty much all from that morning walk in the center of Le Puy. We certainly didn't see everything and we would have had nicer weather (and more crowds) in the summer season, but we got a feel for the place.
