The etymology of Font Romeu comes from “Font” the Fountain and “Romeu” the pilgrim. Because in fact, built in the 17th century, the Hermitage of Font Romeu is historically a place of pilgrimage and a meeting point for pilgrims leaving for the route to Saint Jacques de Compostela. The Hermitage can be visited and you can admire a work of baroque art.
