Le Puy Camino 2016

I will be flying with Singapore Airlines and Lufthansa to Lyons, then taking a train to Le Puy.  From there on foot to Conques, as shown in the 3 images above.  As this route is a little more challenging than the Camino Frances, I have planned shorter days walking.

After Conques, I'll be travelling by public transport to Figeac, Cahors, Moissac and Toulouse where there are monuments I want to see;  then on to St Jean Pied de Port, from where I want to cross the Pyrenees again. This was last done in 1998 when I was a bit younger!

  1. I walked from Le Puy on April 6th, 2016. Went quite slowly, not having prepared at all. From Cahors I took a bus south to within 10 days walking to the St Jean. The whole experience was wonderful.

  2. It is a great route. A pity we had a lot of rain though!
