photoblog image The high town at Pelussin

The high town at Pelussin

The town has a lot of industrial heritage concerning weaving and processing of silk, but to find any information in English I have found nigh impossible. There is wonderful new tourist information set up but all information is in the mother tongue only.

I doubt the French have much interest in telling the Pommies what it is all about, Martin... smile
Martin from Stone: I find it rather frustrating as do like to support my posts with a modicum of information.
It looks really lovely! Silly they don't have tourist info in English!
Martin from Stone: Perhaps they are stuck in a regional time warp

Intriguing isn't it Martin
Martin from Stone: Understatement, they have completely refurbished the Tourist information building in a lavish manner to have added translations in other languages would have cost very little extra. Watch this space, I have since e mailed them
Unfortunately foreign languages are not a priority in France Martin...Very nice picture!
Martin from Stone: I still think it a poor show for a Tourist Information Centre not the cater for other languages

Language protectionism I suspect Martin.
Martin from Stone: The flat earth society rides again.
Nice shot of the old buildings in any case.
Martin from Stone: I will just have to do my own thing. I have since contacted them by e mail to try and get more info - still waiting for a reply !!
