Cycling and Walking Trails

Chemin De Saint Jacques De Compostelle


Le Lot is home to a convergence of paths on the Road to St. Jacques of Compostelle, the pilgrimage to the tomb of James the Apostle located in Santiago de Compostela's Cathedral. The road serves as a way for pilgrims to demonstrate fervor and penitence, as well as partake in the hospitality and traditions of those along the way. Pilgrims began making the voyage as early as the 9th Century. The Catholic Church took heed, officially ordaining the pilgrimage in the 11th Century and elevating Santiago de Compostela with Jerusalem and Rome as one of the three great Pilgrimages of Christendon in the 15th Century. Today, various routes across Europe converge on Spain attracting more than 200,000 pilgrims every year.
