The Arles Camino GR653 or Chemin d’Arles is one of the classic Camino routes in France and was traditionally used by pilgrims from Italy and the South of France on their way to Santiago de Compostela. Along the Arles Camino, you will be enchanted by stunning scenery, rich heritage and culture, as well as delicious food: the vineyards of Languedoc, the Canal du Midi and the breathtaking Pyrenees are some of the route’s highlights. Contact our travel team to learn more about the Arles Camino.
This Camino route takes pilgrims from the Languedoc region in Southern France to Spain, and you can continue on the Camino trail joining the Camino Aragonés at Somport or the Camino Francés at Puente de la Reina. Although Arles is the traditional starting point in Provence, we suggest starting from the lively city of Montpellier, in Languedoc.
Along this route, you will discover stunning towns and villages, picturesque canals, breathtaking mountain ranges and some historic treasures from the 12th to the 16th century. St Guilhem le Desert, Castres, Toulouse, Auch and Oloron Sainte Marie are some of the picturesque towns on your way.
