During this trip, I will be both your driver and guide. I will show you around St. Guilhem le Desert since, as an official guide, I am authorized to guide you in this village.
I suggest you make this trip in the morning or afternoon. Allow about 4 hours in total.
It is also possible to extend this excursion to take the time to have lunch at noon in St. Guilhem le Desert. I will show you the prices below on this page.
A few kilometers before arriving in St. Guilhem le Desert, we will stop for a few minutes at the Pont du Diable site.
I will tell you its legend but also its true story. It is a Romanesque bridge built in the 11th century and which has since been altered.
This will be the opportunity to take some beautiful photos of the entrance to the Herault canyon.
We will then visit the village of Saint-Guilhem-le-Désert.
Walking through its main street lined with many shops and beautiful medieval facades, including the Lorimy house, we will arrive at Gellone abbey which is in the center of the village.
The Romanesque church is magnificent, as is the partially preserved cloister (the missing half is now in New York).
I will not fail to bring you to my favorite panorama to enjoy the most beautiful view of the abbey and the village.
