Saint Bertrand de Comminges is a beautiful medieval town located on a mound, overlooking the course of the Garonne River, ending its journey through the Pyrenees and into the plain of southern France. This place was already inhabited by the Romans, and some vestiges have been left from that period, but without a doubt the most outstanding monument is the Cathedral of Santa Maria, the former episcopal seat of the Val d'Aran and an important point of the "Camino de Santiago" on its way through France, "Camino del Piedmonte Pirenaico".
The stamp of the temple impresses the visitor who won't stop wondering how it is possible to find such a cathedral in such a tiny town. Going deep into its bowels we can discover its history, its past, understand the surprising mixture of architectural styles provoked by the need and the airs of greatness of its main characters, among them a bishop who became Pope, Clement V.
