Video: Visiting an Abandoned Village in France

For nearly a hundred years the village of Rochecolombe in the south of France has been abandoned. The people that lived there packed up and left back in 1920, and yet the buildings and homes still sit along a scenic hillside as if they are waiting for people to return.

This video takes us on a short tour of the town and its surrounding area. At times it is hauntingly beautiful, making one wonder why it was abandoned in the first place.
