We moved on from the lingerie shop in our tour of the depths of Apt, to a small door next to the main pharmacy on the walking street. Down we went…… once again, medieval then Roman..

An entranceway

 

Broken tombs

 

….and where there are tombs, there are human bones

 

They even had shelves in those days

 

The legacy of people who had been there before ourselves – many, many years ago. The little vertical lines denote how many days a certain maçon or explorer had worked there.

 

Concluding our potted history of Apt:

The Apt of modern times is the heart and capital of its area, resolutely looking towards the future. In a constantly-changing society, its desire is to continue to set an example as a balanced town, a place of work and creation, but also of hospitality. The ancient Domitian Way has always been a route for cultural exchanges and trade between east and west, and so it is to-day.
