Oradour-Saint-Genest from the south

    Oradour-Saint-Genest Department 87, Haute-Vienne, from the south on the D91. What is not obvious from this view is just how narrow and twisty the road becomes on the way to the church. There is a junction with the D104 just round the bend on the left and the road does a sharp hairpin bend to the left at that point. Compare this view with the one taken from the north. There was, I think no possibility of confusing this place with Oradour-sur-Glane in 1944.
