The Routes of Compostelle in the Centre-Val de Loire region
In order to follow in the footsteps of today’s pilgrim in the footsteps of those of yesterday, the ways of Compostelle in the Centre-Val de Loire region follow as much as possible the so-called historical paths which make it possible to avoid certain lengths or passages dangerous. These ways, called associative, have therefore been taken up by the departmental jacquaires associations to build in the Centre-Val de Loire region the Ways of Compostela that cross it.
The Ways of Tours and Vézelay take long GR® hiking trails which are partly based on historic trails. The vocation of these GR® being essentially focused on hiking and tourism, their routes can quite often deviate, in our region, from the route of associative paths (several tens of kilometers sometimes).
In order to make reading easier in the field, the markup remains that of the GR® on the common areas, the rest having markings specific to local associations.
