A place full of historical gems
History does not reveal its originis. Two legends : one about the Héas chapel (near Gavarnie) and two doves, the other one about a statue in a incredible light. We can imagine that the first and tiny building has gone through a number of adaptations : extensions, embellishments, ornaments, destructions (because of earthquakes or humans), reconstructions…
Religious and hospitable place : the Arrens « hospitalet », near to the chapel, welcomed travellers and pilgrims that they are going to the spanish sanctuary of Notre-Dame del Pilar, at Saragosse, or to the tomb of the Apôtre Saint-Jacques at Compostelle. The lintel on the door of the Hospitalet, dated 1591, was stored in the wall of the village church.
