Regarding

The Romanesque church of Saint-Laurent-du-Mont is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful architectural treasures to be found in the mountain of Argelès. Saint Laurent was built without interruption in the 12th century and became a parish church that served the numerous 'mas' nestled in the hills. Then, the chapel was abandoned. In 1939, the building provided housing for Spanish refugees fleeing from the war. It had even been converted into a sheepfold for some time, but it has found its original function again recently. This very lovely site can be the final of a pleasant walking route.
