Photographer's Note

Leucate (Aude < Languedoc-Roussillon > south of France).

The seaside resort has 2500 inhabitants all the year and tens of thousands in summer.
The town is expanded on 4 places : Leucate-village (the old town), Leucate-beach (between the cliff and the sea), Port-Leucate (between the pond and the sea) and La Franqui (across the cliff, at the north).

A path follow the edge of the cliff (50 high from the sea), between Leucate and La Franqui.
When the weather's fine, we can see to Sète.

This cliff road has some monuments : the semaphore of the National Marine, the old fort of the High-Franqui (XVIIIth)...
At the beginning of the path, next to Leucate, there is the lighthouse.

It was open in 1951. 19,4 m high, it's 68 m above the sea.
Its fire can light to 20 milles.
Next to the pyramid-shaped tower, there is the guard's house, the machines room, a workshop and a power transformer.

On the same place stands an higher tower with a spherical top : a telecommunications and tv transmitter.
