Every year, when Spring blossoms, thousands of walkers set off from everywhere in Europe. Some come from the North and the East — Germans, Belgians, Poles, Swiss, Austrians — who meet the French walkers on the historic roads of Paris, Vezelay or the Puy en Velay. Others from the South — Italians– who walk up the famous Via Romea, the Ancient Mediteranean route which is common to the pilgrimages of Saint Peter in Roma and Santiago de Compostela.
