From Le Puy to Cahors 

Passing through Aubrac, Conques and Figeac.

Of the four Ways of St. James, this “Route du Puy” is undoubtedly the most famous.

It’s also the first to have been classified as a GR® trail, as close as a route can get to historical reality.

It’s also the most endearing to explore, with the wild beauty of some of its sections and the majesty of the great holy monuments that mark it.

The route first crosses the Velay, Margeride and Aubrac ranges. This succession of small mountainous massifs is in fact the place of origin of actual countries with their own identities, which extend as far as the borders of Rouergue.

The Velay has a line of volcanic ridges. The Margeride, on the other hand, offers the face of a mysterious moor, strewn with granite. Finally, the hiker's enthusiasm will doubtlessly be sparked by the natural meadows of Aubrac, its small lakes and streams, and its traditional pastoral life.
