A pious Frank princess
In the 6th century, the King of the Franks, Chlothar II, had a daughter named Enimie. Very pious, she refused to marry and begged God to preserve her purity. Afflicted from then on by leprosy, an angel told her to bathe in miraculous water near Burlatis. Though she recovered, the disease returned as soon as she moved away from the river. Enimie decided to found a convent in the village and lead a life of meditation. The legend also tells that she repelled the Drac (Devil) at Pas de Soucy. Her relics remained in the hermitage until they were stolen in 1970. A pilgrimage is celebrated there in October to honor the patroness of the village of Sainte-Enimie.
