For centuries, pilgrims on their way to Santiago d
e Compostela have taken via Podiensis (GR65) to visit this pilgrimage site.

After the green valley of the Lot, the Quercy is the gateway to the path in Tarn and Garonne… Lauzerte, Moissac and Auvillar are united by this invisible link that is the way of Compostela and the thousands of pilgrims who tread each year this territory made of hillsides and plains, where the Tarn and the Garonne meet and cross the Canal des Deux-Mers. Discover this land of cocagne where the inhabitants with a singing accent, the charming villages, the orchards and the sun-drenched fruits, the markets and the local gastronomy, await you.

Preparing for the path

  • Preparing for your fitness
  • Adapt your equipment
  • Choosing good shoes
  • Plan to hold on to the rain
  • A survival blanket
  • A meat bag for accommodation
  • Gourdes to transport water
  • Don't overload the backpack

Warning: bivouac is not allowed in some villages, and in case of an orange warning for severe thunderstorms, the areas of retreat are few. It is best to provide a minimum budget in order to retreat to secure accommodation. When you arrive, at your stopping area, it is best to check the weather.
