Le Puy to Conques

This section of the great pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela has been called “the most picturesque and interesting section in France”, and the hiking trail begins in the historic city of Le Puy-en-Velay. Along the way you visit fascinating churches, pilgrim fountains and so come across the legend of the Beast of Gevaudan. You cross the exposed Auvergne Massif and explore St-Come-d’Olt and Espalion, known as “Les plus beaux villages de France” – the most beautiful villages in France. You will sample the regional foods and wines of France. After a superb walking journey of 210km, you arrive at Conques, an ancient abbey town hidden in the Lot Valley. Here you visit the world-famous abbey-church and its treasury, filled with medieval relics. Also included in this journey is a visit to the once renowned pilgrimage site of Rocamadour, destination for countless medieval pilgrims wishing to visit the Black Madonna of Rocamadour. So, visiting Villages, such as Nasbinals and the magnificent, medieval Espalion, along with the French countryside you will be encouraged you to make this journey yourself.
