Description

The Way of Saint James goes through this town in the Pyrenees, situated in a steep and narrow valley, surrounded by woods, with irrigation channels cutting through.

The name of the municipality reminds us of the epic and legendary past of these lands, because it refers to Charlemargne. He would have been playing chess in this valley when he heard Roland's oliphant that announced impending danger. The events are told in the Song of Roland.
