    Road to Santiago de Compostela

    "To each his way", taken over certain sections, or in its entirety, motivation for following the Road varies hugely: religious reasons, need to find oneself, to recharge the batteries, to meet people, sporting exploit, etc.

    Santiago de Compostela


    Every year, nearly 25,000 pilgrim hikers start from Le Puy en Velay, of which about 20,000 cross the Aubrac plateau. Classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1998, the Le Puy Route - GR 65 - is also recognised as a European Cultural Route by the Council of Europe.

    The so-called Pilgrims' bridge over the Boralde at Saint Chély is classified as a Cultural Object and the Nasbinals-Aubrac-Saint Chély d'Aubrac section as a Natural Property for the authenticity of its landscapes.

    Santiago de Compostela (the ultimate goal of this route) is 1390 km from the village of Aubrac.
