Saint-Guilhem-le-Désert is a stopping place on the pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostela ; its church is a gem of Romanesque art of the Languedoc. The village is situated in a wild spot at the entrance to the Gorges du Verdus and the cirque de l’Infernet. The narrow streets spread out from Place de la Liberté square and its imposing 150-year-old plane tree and as visitors stroll around they can still admire Renaissance mullioned windows, twin-arched openings and gothic lintels.
