The ancient Via Podiensis

THE LE PUY TO CONQUES 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 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.
