Portrait of a village come to life - St Paul de Vence
And then the buses arrive, the shops open and the village comes to life. The Devil Dog never tired of walking the streets of St Paul de Vence whether abandoned or teeming with life. One main street, a widened alley really, traverses the whole of the village from point to point, where most of the shops are located, and half an alley over two more parrallel pathways are purely residential, mystical, and providential, a living breathing organism from 2000 years ago, resurrected in the flesh at fulcrum of culture and antiquity., with quiet homes and ancient cul de sacs where St Paul de Vence truly lives.
