L'ermitage de Saint Ferreol​

Published on April 5, 2018 by Lina Yeo-Blake

The hermitage of St Ferréol is located 5kms north-east of Céret , on the left bank of Tech. It is 300m above sea level, on a rocky plan accessible from the North essentially.

Perched on a hilltop in the shadows of Pic Canigou, the hermitage is worth the effort to climb. The walk up is not arduous and it is possible to reach it by car. Ceret is visible below and Canigou into the distance. It is definitely worth walking beyond and above where the views back to St. Ferreol and the Alberes with the autoroute passing into Spain beyond are dramatic.

The hermitage Sant Ferréol is a place of worship of Céret, in the Vallespir. Built for the relics conservation needs of this Saint, it has been expanded over time to form the complete ensemble that can be seen today. It is both a place of worship and a place of pleasure, ceretans come regularly here to enjoy the good air, calm and sight.

The hermitage consists of a chapel dating from the XIII th century was rebuilt in the XVIII th, the building adjoining the chapel used as a dwelling for the hermit and large buildings built recently to accommodate the crowd of pilgrims. It looks a little, in its structure, the hermitage Notre Dame du Coral . The chapel is quite large, it has a beautiful plastered facade, a large entrance gate whose outlines are brick (and not cut stone, as is the custom), a bull's eye to bring light and a pinnacle with a single bell.

Matthew and I are art lovers, appreciate good food and wine (he more than I), enjoy a run, hike and ski on the slopes and passionate about the sea. With Ceret - a commune in the Pyrénées-Orientales department in southern France - located just 20 minutes by car from the Spanish border / Mediterranean sea and 1.5 hour drive to some of the best ski resorts in France, it was not surprising both of us fell in love with Ceret when we first visited. During this trip, we knew Ceret would be a place we want to visit regularly and relocate to eventually, so we purchased our holiday home there. Alas, that is the short story of how and why we fell in love with Ceret and we hope our guests will do so too!
