Saint-Guilhem-le-Désert

On the way to Santiago de Compostella

Saint-Guilhem-le-Désert is like a hidden treasure that you’ll find at the end of a winding road, set at the back of the Languedoc hinterland. This village with light stoned buildings is listed as World Heritage by UNESCO. You’ll be charmed by the exceptional setting and architecture. The 11th century abbey-church in pre-Norman style is definitely worth a visit. The village is an important halt and departure point for pilgrims on their way to Santiago de Compostella.
