French Pilgrim Paths

Throughout history, from all over Europe, pilgrims have walked to the saint’s tomb at Santiago de Compostela, passing by and stopping at other shrines along the way. Due to its size and common borders with so many other countries, France was the ideal place for pilgrims to gather for the long journey to Santiago. The French cities that provided these pilgrim gathering sites were Paris, Le Puy-en-Velay, Vezelay and Arles. Pilgrims would then follow well established pathways and roads towards the Spanish border. Three of these four routes converged in the Pyrenees at the border with Spain and continued on the Way of St James to the shrine. If you have ever wanted to go on a pilgrimage, but have been reluctant or unsure about how to start, this course will help you to prepare for your pilgrimage and give you a taste for walking in France along the ancient Via Podiensis.
