Via Turonensis

From Vieux-Reng (Nord) to the Gibraltar Stele (Pyrenees-Atlantiques)

Santiago de Compostela


The Via Turonensis, also known as the Way of Tours or the Way of Saint James, is one of the four main French routes of the pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela. This route connects the city of Tours in France to the Spanish border and extends over approximately 900 kilometers. The beginning of the path is located in the city of Tours, an ancient medieval city rich in history and heritage. Pilgrims who take this route then cross magnificent hilly landscapes, verdant forests, and charming villages typical of the region. As they progress, they pass through important cities such as Orleans, Chartres, and Paris, where they can admire numerous historical sites and monuments. The itinerary of the Via Turonensis mainly follows ancient Roman roads and medieval paths, thus offering pilgrims the opportunity to walk in the footsteps.
