Some of the best village ramparts in France
Ricote seemed an interesting little town and the aire was spacious, free and had great views. We decided that it was worth at least another night to allow us to explore the little town and have a relax and warm up after several driving days in the cold high altitudes. Ricote is still over 200m but noticeably warmer than Castalla was. Ricote town is quite small – 1500 population according to Wikipedia – and concentrated on quite a small area.
