It is told that Galamus comes from the Latin word “gaudeamus”, “let us enjoy”.
The Gorge de Galamus is a photographers dream. It has something for everyone and it takes just over an hour to get to from La Souqueto our B&B in Languedoc.
The water erosion in the gorge has created a beautiful place to visit. There are natural pools to swim in and wonderful walks down paths that lead to waterfalls. It is possible to walk along the road through the gorge but we decided to take the path to the stunning Ermitage Chapel…just look at these pictures.
For directions to the Gorge follow the D7 from Saint-Paul-de-Fenouillet (on D117 from Perpignan)
