Photographer's Note

Tende is a small mediaeval village in the French Alps on the Franco-Italian border. It has a mixed history, seemingly going back and forward between being part of Italy (1861-1947) and then part of France (1947 to date).

THe architecture is in the Italian mediaeval style. The houses are grouped together and quite run-down, although to me they are very charming. There are two parts to the town: an old and a new part. It's great wandering around the narrow streets and vaulted passageways of the old town.

There are many beautiful old buildings of note in the town but Eglise St Michel (13th Century) was my favourite.
