I speculated in a recent post about the origin of the road through the Defile de la Pierre Lys. It turns that I was way off the mark when I guessed 1930s. I noticed yesterday a statue of Felix Armand in the old town. He apparently was the ‘creator’ of the Defile de la Pierre Lys route and he lived 1742 to 1823.
The plaque says something like The work and perseverance will make our descendants more prosperous.
