A camping trip to the Gers: a packed programme of nature excursions

[Translate to Anglais:]

Numerous hiking trails criss-cross the region around La Romieu. Put on your hiking shoes and follow the meanders of the Petit Auvignon or set off to explore the old fiefdoms of Gascony. Or how about joining a section of the Santiago de Compostela pilgrimage route that passes through La Romieu and taking a short stroll along this iconic trail? Alternatively, you can make for the banks of the Garonne on your mountain bike and enjoy a ride along the water. Oh, and why don’t you make the most of the opportunity and go for a short trip in your canoe-kayak?

Visiting La Romieu, discovering its historic heritage...and its cats

[Translate to Anglais:]

Once you’ve admired the collégiale Saint-Pierre collegiate church, an impressive building that dates back to the 14th century, and the charming village washhouse through which the Petit Auvignon river gently flows, then it’s time for a cat hunt! In fact, La Romieu is famous for its legend about cats, a myth that was entirely fabricated by a local artist during the 1990s. Maurice Serreau, a sculptor, started to make and donate statues of cats to local shopkeepers and residents. Look upwards and you’ll be able to spot quite a few of them, hidden on window ledges, on door steps and other nooks and crannies, some obvious, others less so. It’s a great way of motivating youngsters to explore the village streets! To accompany this sudden invasion of cats, the artist created a legend in which a small girl, back in the Middle Ages, saved La Romieu from famine thanks to her cats who chased away the mice and rats.
