Les Gorges de Galamus - Saint-Paul-de-Fenouillet/Cubières-sur-Cinoble

3 miles north of Saint-Paul-de-Fenouillet, the awe-inspired site of the Gorges of Galamus is an imposing, protected place.
It probably was the first inhabited place in Saint Paul: our ancestors found shelter in the limestone caves that can be seen in the giddy cliffs. The river Agly rushes down a deep break, much to the pleasure of the adepts of canyoning and rafting.

Typical mediterranean plants grow on its steep slopes, such as evergreen oaks, jumper trees while Bonneli eagles soar over the winding narrow road that clings to the cliff.

To the South, the impressive Gorges de la Fou, cut through the mountain - the exact replica of galamus - opens to the South and the gallo-Roman bridge...

Since the seventh century, the natural grottes of Galamus, " the holy mount ", have become a refuge for the hermits. They built their humble cells, lived in prayer and abstinence, then died.

They placed the site under the protection of Saint Anthony the Great, the patriarch of the monks of the desert . The Franciscans fit out the site in the 15 th century. It has become a traditional place of pilgrinage on Easter and Whitsun Mondays.

Thanks to the exceptional situation of the Hermitage, hung up half-way up the cliff, the place was the setting of several films: "Chine ma douleur " - Jean Vigo Prize 1989 - and " The 9th Door " by Roman Polanski in 1998.

Bugarach

Bugarach


Shrowded in mystery, myth and legend, the peak of Mount Bugarach majestically dominates the wider area around Rennes-le-Château. The farming village is in the region of the Cathar castles, situated on spectacular rocky outcrops. Regarded as heretics by the Catholic Church, Cathars sought refuge in these castles in the 13th century when Pope Innocent III launched a full scale crusade against them. The village lies next to the Pic de Bugarach, a rocky peak which, at 1230 metres, is the highest point of the Corbières range of hills. The peak is dwarfed however by the nearby Pyrenees and offers splendid views of the range. Made of limestone with galleries of caves beneath it, the peak is a geological oddity, since its top layers are millions of years older than its bottom ones, making it an 'upside down mountain'. The peak of Bugarach has been shrouded in mystery, with various claims that it houses aliens in cavities beneath the rock. The internet abounds with tales of the late President François Mitterrand being curiously heliported onto the peak, of mysterious digs conducted by the Nazis and later Mossad, the Israeli secret services. There is talk of the area, near to the Cathar castles, holding the Holy Grail or the treasure of the Templars. A visit to Bugarach is said to have inspired Steven Spielberg in his film, Close Encounters of the Third Kind – although the actual mountain he used is Devil's Tower in Wyoming...
