Le Chemin de Compostelle

The road to Santiago de Compostela (Spain)

One of the great walking paths of Pilgrimage and Long Distance Walking, 1515 km long, links Le Puy-en-Velay to Santiago de Compostela in Spain. The roads to Santiago in Saône et Loire start in Remigny (Chagny) and go to Cluny, then to Le Puy-en-Velay (Haute-Loire), the starting point of the Puy-en-Velay route, one of the most frequented. The European route marking for the whole way is a yellow shell on a blue background.

The 66 km between Chagny and Cluny follow the GR 76.

Three essential stages:

From Fontaines to Moroges (Saint-Désert) : 20 km

From Moroges to Saint-Gengoux-le-National : 21 km

From Saint-Gengoux-le-National to Cluny : 24 km

The next 22 km between Cluny and Tramayes, in the south of Saône-et-Loire, follow the GR 765. The route then continues in the Rhône on the GR3.

New :

A 13-km marked connecting trail from the TGV station in Mâcon-Loché leads to Cenves (Rhône) and then on to the classic Cluny-Le Puy-en-Velay-Compostelle route.
