The great vista from the Madeloc Tower to Cote Vermeille in France

The great vista from the Madeloc Tower to Cote Vermeille in France
 
A fine day in October for a hike to the Madeloc tower and the faboulous vista, here captured in a stitch of 2 photos.
 
In the left the lower summit with the fortification Fort St. Elme ( planned by the famous and hyperactive Vauban). Then to the middle the small deep water harbour of Port Vendres. To the right again another military fortification just over the lighthouse at Cape Bear - before we ends up in Banyuls Sur Mer in the right of the photo.
 
You can also see many vinyard tracks in the hills down towards the sea.
