The Notre-Dame chapel 17th century, built by 1680.

Initially rival of the hamlet of the Guarrigue and its church mentioned in 1146, the hamlet of LAGAMAS shelters more numerous inhabitants who make build in 1680 the NOTRE-DAME chapel, whose role was replaced in 1880 by the Parochial churchNotre-Dame of the Garrigue.

The Narcissus pseudonarcissus , is frequently called wild daffodil.

LAGAMAS is a french commune, located in the departement of Herault of the Languedoc-Roussillon area, populated of 123 Lagamasois in 2005, distributed out of 4.5 km², that is to say 27.2 hab/km².

The village was built in 12th 14th 17th 19th centuries, on 1146, 1331, 1680, 1899.

The territory of the municipality of Lagamas is crossed by the HÉRAULT river.

_ The HÉRAULT river takes its source to 1228 m of altitude not far from the pass of Serreyrède, in the Aigoual mountain, the department of Gard. It is thrown in the Mediterranean in Agde in the department of Hérault after a course of 147.7 km and the crossing of a catchment area of 2550 km². Its very irregular flow can fall to approximately 2 m³/s in summer, and reach 1500 m³/s, even more. After having been a torrent descending of the important slopes of 1000 m out of 10 km, it slips in a valley bored in limestones of causses, then is spread out a little in the coastal plain. Its very irregular course and sometimes very violent one is not easy to domesticate. One finds however there some ancians forgotten mills, built like fortresses to resist the fury of its spectacular risings. Description of the river Hérault.
