La Romieu

La RomieuOn the road to Compostela

A major stopover for pilgrims on their way to Santiago de Compostela, this pretty ecclesiastical town was once surrounded by walls and moats. What remains today of this period is a pretty town full of character and a beautiful collegiate church whose cloister is particularly worth a visit. At the edge of the village, an arboretum featuring some 700 species of trees offers a beautiful view of the collegiate church.
