Photographer's Note

It is on the D26D you can see this beautiful landscape. Here again the fog did not help me ... I'll be back! ....
Coume is the common side and a little further there Argeles-Bagneres.
This referendum is that the inhabitants of this village were brought to be confirmed around 2000 the name of their town. Indeed, the French administration had reduced to Argelès' in many databases, causing inconsistencies in fact different administrative and postal services. Its clay which is the origin of its name, the village was flowery many cherry trees that have the nickname of the city: Argelès-the-Cherries. Faced with these designations, the City Council has decided to launch a process of changing the name of the town. For this, he asked each person to provide the desired names. All were voted in two rounds. This is Argelès-Bagneres' which won the largest number of votes. The name and procedure were approved by Decree of the State Council on 1 August 2003. This change procedure communal name seems fairly common.
