The Chemin de Saint-Jacques-de-Compostelle

From the great steppe of the Aubrac to the charming villages of the Lot valley, from the gentleness of the Vallon to the dominating plateaux, let yourself be carried away by this land full of history and emotion.

Today, this heritage has been classed by UNESCO as a world heritage site, as is the ensemble of the Chemins de Saint Jacques de Compostelle.

We invite you to live or relive the adventures of the 12th century pilgrims.

The Aveyronnaise part of the Saint Jacques de Compostelle (GR® 65) covers 102km between the Aubrac and Livinhac-le-Haut in the Lot valley and represents 5 days’ walking.
