Le Grand Lemps, Eglisé

As soon as I got off the train, I noticed that I was missing my camera. I left it on the train from Geneva to Grenoble. So there are photos with the Iphone.

rssting place

The rest area at the signpost Rondet before Gillonnay came in very handy. This is where the Pilgrim's Way to Santiago forks: straight ahead to Le Puy-en-Velay, to the left towards Arles.

birth place of Hector Berlioz

The birthplace of Hector Berlioz in La Côte-St-André is now a museum.

Hektor Berlioz

Berlioz was born here on 11 December 1803. He is considered an important representative of the music of the Romantic period in France, although he himself could not understand the term "Romanticism": He considered himself a classical composer. He is considered the founder of symphonic programme music and modern orchestral instrumentation. His compositions, which were revolutionary for their time, were hardly understood and earned him more criticism than praise. Therefore he had to earn his living additionally as a music critic. In France he only received recognition long after his death.
