Free of charge

The abbey of Cluny and the Musée d’Ochier are free of charge open from November until March the first Sunday of the month.

Spiral staircase - Musée Ochier - Cluny
And since that period is outside the tourist season mainly locals take this opportunity. Why spend € 8 per person if not necessary, and without any effort as well?

Transept Cluny III - Cluny
I wanted (or had to) produce some pictures on the theme “Curves”, and since Malibu Beach is not exactly around the corner, and neither fever nor exchange rate curves seemed very appealing, I decided to try my luck in Cluny. Romanesque as well as Gothic architecture is based on all sort of curved arches and vaults, hence it should not be too difficult to find some interesting curved constructions or decorations for this chore.

Monumental staircase ENSAM - Cluny
Making a choice from an extensive series of photographs very often turns out more traumatic than taking the pictures itself. This blog contains some curved construction or decorative elements I stumbled upon this rainy Sunday.

Gallilée - Cluny
One extra remark: for those who do not stay in this part of the world between November and March the investment of € 8 to see the abbey and museum on a non free of charge day is worth every penny!
