The Le Puy Camino also known as Via Podiensis or Chemin du Puy in French, starts in the spectacular town of Le Puy-en-Velay, in central France. It follows the GR65 trail and is the most popular of the Camino de Santiago routes in France. Both the Geneva Way and the Cluny Way join the Le Puy route at Le Puy-en-Velay.
The Le Puy Camino route is a superb hike taking in stunning countryside and some of the most beautiful towns in France. The volcanic landscapes of Velay, the peaceful Aubrac plateau, the beautiful towns of Conques, Cahors and the Lot Valley, the splendid vineyards of Armagnac brandy and the outstanding Pyrenees Mountains are some of the highlights on the Le Puy Way.
The route joins up with the French Way, the famous, Camino Francés, in Saint Jean Pied de Port, on the French side of the Pyrenees.
