Via Gebennensis

Via Gebennensis, Geneva - Le Puy-en-Velay, 330 km, 13 days

Pilgrims to Santiago de Compostela, coming from Switzerland, will most likely follow this Way. From Geneva, it is about two weeks walking to Le Puy-en-Velay. The trail is marked red and white as GR65, and also with the blue and yellow coquilles Saint Jacques. This Way of St. James is very attractive as it traverses the Alps and is yet a quiet trail.

From Le Puy, pilgrims continue on the well known Via Podiensis to the Pyrenees. This part is also marked as GR65, and the FFRP issues a topoguide.
