Take a tour of French Village of Collonges-la-Rouge in Collonge-la-Rouge, France – part of the World’s Greatest Attractions travel video series by GeoBeats. If you look best in red, you may want to visit the French village of Collonges-la-Rouge. Almost all of the buildings in this small town in the Limousin region are built with local red sandstone. History traces the town back to the 8th century, and it has since been a highly desirable destination site. The town has gone through various stages, including once being a pilgrim destination and a stone quarry. The "most beautiful villages of France" association was created in this ethereal town, an admittedly proper place to begin this prestigious honor. With local help, the town was given the title of “historical monument” in 1942.
