Angoulême is a wonderful hill-top city and commune in southwestern France, préfecture (capital city) of the Charente département. The old plateau area is truly magnificent, with cobbled streets, bustling with cafe/bars, quality shops and a wide varity of restaurants.

One of the nicest squares on the Plateau is Place de Minage


Angouleme also houses the national cartoon museum of France (“le centre national de la bande dessinée et de l’image”). There is also a “BD” walk around the town, where around twenty specially commissioned walls have been painted in the style of the most famous proponents of the art of The Cartoon.
