When in the kingdom of France, the crests of the Massif Central were the way to the Mediterranean and Saint-Gilles was the port of embarkation for the holy land, the Camin Romieu (way of Romes) and the Camin Régourdan (way of Régordane) carried the quest of thousands of men through the greatest pilgrimages of Christianity.

1 historical route

240 km from Puy en Velay to Saint Gilles du Gard

Taking the Régordane path, is to rediscover these paths to spirituality, but also to cross lands populated with legends: those of William of Orange and the Charroi de Nîmes, of Mandrin’s brigands, of the Beast of Gévaudan, of Mr. Seguin’s goat or Peter and the Wolf.

The Régordane path invites the traveler to meet the countries, the Men and their history. Path of freedom, path of tolerance, it engages us in attentive listening to the land. The monuments, humble or prestigious heritage, the landscapes shaped by man, the tales are bearers of meaning for our time. It is up to us to question along the way the multiple signs of this millennial dialogue to understand identities, to discover differences.

This itinerary, from the cathedral of Le Puy en Velay to the tower of Constance, concentrates on its edges the ancient and medieval civilizations, the Cevennes culture, the Saracen influence, the resistance, the crusades…

The topo-guide of the French Federation of Hiking The Regordane Way – GR700 will guide you along the way.
