The destination of the Secret Journey. There are still meadows and swimming holes down by the river. The foundations of the ancient Bridge can still be seen disturbing the fast flowing waters. I almost expected to tumble upon the Princes tent and meet Ximene myself.
On the journey to Muret it was necessary to cross the Arriege at Lacroix-Falguarde.Lacroix is now a suburb of Toulouse; in the countryside and laced with expensive detached houses. As in many of the places visited there is a delightful restaurant complete with views over the crossing point.
