The way of Vézelay, Unesco World Heritage to Compostela

Le pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela has always been considered, along with those of Rome and Jerusalem, as one of the great peregrinations of Christianity.

The Vézelay route in Gironde

The Vézelay route arrives in Gironde from the bridge of Sainte-Foy-la-Grande. The path continues in Entre-deux-Mers, then beyond Réole, through Bazadais and finally into the entrance to the Landes de Gascogne. The pilgrim will then be able to discover territories steeped in history and a remarkable Jacobean heritage.

Sainte-Foy-la-Grande, a stage on the way to Compostela

Sainte-Foy-la-Grande is the major stage between Mussidan (24) and Saint-Ferme (33). You can reach the bastide of Sainte-Foy-La-Grande and the town of Port-Sainte-Foy-et-Ponchapt by following the signs from the Dordogne Departmental Council from Mussidan. You will leave the Pays Foyen after having been able to sleep in the pilgrim accommodation of the bastide of Pellegrue.

In the time of English Aquitaine, many secondary routes existed between Dordogne and Garonne. In addition, a variant of the road to Saint-Jacques de Compostelle arrives in Pays Foyen from Bergerac. You arrive on our territory by discovering the church of Pineuilh.

La Bastide de Pellegrue, next step towards Compostela

The bastide of Pellegrue was crossed and still is by very many pilgrims who stop in particular at the jacquaire lodging of the commune. Located on the road to Vézelay, it is a stopover for an appreciated rest. You can contact
