Gorges filled with history...
Word made of rocky grouds, white waters and dazzling lights, the Grand site de France Gorges de l’Hérault is a mosaic of spectacular and protected landscapes, which lead to amazement and to revitalisation.
While flowing down throughout the Cévennes, the Hérault river has sculpted wild gorges, both verdurous and mineral, in the massif of the Séranne, which is close to the Pic Saint Loup. In the middle of the Piémont languedocien, it suddenly reappears under the Pont du Diable, on a vast plain where vines and olive trees reign supreme.
At the heart of the « Grand Site de France », the medieval village Saint-Guilhem-le-Désert shelters since the IXth century the remarkable and splendid abbey of Gellone, which will shine upon a myriad of midieval cities, churches, chapels and bridges on the Way of Saint James.
