Week 26 2015


In Castillon the old swimming pool has been given a facelift.  Did you even know there was a swimming pool in Castillon?  Hidden between the Salle and the Primary school is the abandoned open air pool. 

During the course of last week various graffiti artists came and ‘tagged’ the outside of the pool with nautically influenced graffiti art.  As the summer rolls on, there will be more events, find out more at the Facebook page Graff Battle Show#1. 

Whatever you do this week in the Gironde and Dordogne regions, have a great week.  If you hear of any events that you’d like to share on the blog, please don’t hestitate to send me information and I’ll add it in whenever possible. 

Many thanks and best wishes,
