Mende gives the impression of a large rural town hidden behind a ring of boulevards, which seems to have eluded time. It holds the record as the département administration centre with the lowest population in France. It is true to say that serenity is a byword here, far from the hustle and bustle of the contemporary world. Wandering along the winding streets, lined with austere façades, occasionally catching a glimpse of a decorated doorway or a small shrine, is extremely pleasant.
