After criss-crossing the Swiss-French borders I eventually made it to Ferrette.

Even though it was a Saturday afternoon it seemed pretty dead.

Checking my map I could see a different route home, looking upwards I could see an ancient castle.

I cycled as much as I could, but eventually I had to walk up the final track.

Steep rocky paths and cycling shoes are not a good mix.

Every step had the potential for a nasty accident.

It was all worth when I got to the top and entered into the ruins of Le Chateau de Ferrette.

It dates back to 1105 AD, with various updates in the 15th and 16th century.

There were two main surprises.

Beautiful lizards on basking in heat on the castle walls, and secondly I was impressed by the size of the construction.

The views were absolutely wonderful.

If you know what species of Lizard I spotted please let me know.
