Saint-Jacques de Compostelle

The number of pilgrims taking this historical path is increasing every day. Its well-marked route, numerous accommodation places, the rich heritage of the villages and the beauty of the landscapes, make it an ideal hiking route.

There are many paths crossing France to reach St Jacques de Compostelle. The one that crosses our territory comes from Cluny, where you can still admire the ruins of its abbey, and joins Puy via St Jacques des Arrêts, Ouroux, Col de Crie to reach Echarmeaux and continue in the department of Loire.

Plan your route

You can find all the details of the way to St Jacques de Compostelle, from Cluny to Puy en Velay, also departing from Lyon, in "Le Guide Orange" published by the Association of Friends of St Jacques in the Rhône-Alpes. This small booklet updated annually indicates all the stages and lists a lot of practical information, such as accommodation or supply places.
