FORMERLY CALLED THE RELAY OF COMPOSTELLE WELCOMES YOU IN A PLACE FILLED WITH HISTORY
Already known in Charlemagne priory bardanac becomes the hospital Bardanac, before becoming Notre Dame de Bardanac. Becoming a relay station, it took the name of Relay Compostela in memory of pilgrims left on the way to St Jacques.
After his defeat in front of Saragossa and the debacle of Roncesvalles, Charlemagne stops near the Bardanac hospital to treat his wounded. The establishment of the time was not the one we know today. It included a fire room, a barn with straw to sleep in and a common hospital room, plus 5 beds reserved for notables passing through.
In 1328, our Lady of Bardanac enjoyed greater renown among the faithful.
In 1464, Louis XI created the royal post and Notre Dame de Bardanac became the Relay of Compostela.
