This route is at the heart of the great movements of ancient and medieval history. It was used to connect the Ile-de-France region to the Mediterranean.
In 10 days, from Puy-en-Velay to Saint-Gilles-du-Gard, via Langogne, La Garde-Guerin, Alès or Nîmes, hikers follow a thousand-year-old route carved with ruts (a kind of track dug in the rock to guide carts), bordered with dolmens and rock inscriptions.
From stage to stage, hikers will discover the history of the movement of people, goods and ideas. This path bears the traces of the struggle for freedom of conscience: Arianism, Catharism, Protestantism developed along it.
The landscape is very rich: coniferous forests, luxuriant meadows and lava flows in the north gradually give way to chestnut trees, Scotch broom, holm oaks and then scrubland as we approach the Petite Camargue.
