Photo Tour: Céret, France

Céret is a pretty village, nestled into the foothills of the Pyrénées mountains, in the very southeast corner of France. It's known for its cherries... and its modern art museum. For being in such a small town, the museum has a fantastic collection. Céret has been a magnet for artists. During the first half of the 20th century, a parade of famous artists -- including Picasso, Braque, Dufy, Gris, Chagall, and more -- came here for the setting or to take refuge from Nazism during the Second World War. I hear that festivals are a big part of life here, too -- Céret is Catalan, which helps to explain that -- but I missed the festivals on my weekend stay.

I browsed through the Saturday morning market, had a good look at the museum, and wandered around the streets. Here's some of what I saw.

...and more Catalan flags
Red shutters...
...and blue shutters
Jump on my bicycle...
...and let's go!
