Market day in Forcalquier in the Alpes de Haut Provence

Market day in Forcalquier in the square in front of the Concathédrale Notre Dame du Bourguet de Forcalquier in Provence; the trees revealing the solid 12th century architecture, so different to the graceful arcitecture of cathedrals from the north of France of the same period. It's easy to imagine the cathdral doubling as a fortress.
