The Saint James way from Cahors to Lectoure

The Saint James way from Cahors to Lectoure

Via Podiensis is one of the four main pilgrimage routes to the Spanish sanctuary of Santiago de Compostela from Le Puy en Velay, a Marian sanctuary since the fifth century. Since the Middle Ages, millions of pilgrims have left from Le Puy to journey to the Spanish Galicia, at the extremity of the Iberian Peninsula, to venerate the relics of Saint James, one of Christ’s apostles. This pilgrimage is today registered on the World Heritage list of UNESCO. You will leave Cahors and the Lot Valley across the White Perigord, a vast, undulating stretch of whitish landscape where sheep pastures alternate with rich valleys producing tobacco, fruits, wine and grains. The villages are perched on the tops of steeply sloped hills called Les Puech, and dominate the surrounding landscape. After passing through Moissac, well known for its abbey and its production of sweet white grapes, you will cross the Garonne River and enter into Gascogne. You will discover the rolling countryside of Lomagne, dotted with beautiful old pigeon houses.
