On the Huguenots footstep

From Poet-Laval (Drome) to Geneva (Switzerland)


The Huguenots were French Protestants who were persecuted in France during the 17th century. In 1685, the Edict of Fontainebleau revoked the Edict of Nantes, which had granted Protestants a certain religious freedom. The Huguenots were forced to convert to Catholicism or flee France. More than 200,000 Huguenots chose exile and sought refuge in other European countries such as Germany, the Netherlands, Switzerland, and England. The exodus of French Huguenots to Protestant countries to escape persecution is a significant event in European history. From 1560 to 1760, this diaspora concerned more than two hundred thousand Huguenots who took the path of exile out of loyalty to their faith.
