Through the Rue de St-Jaques, you leave the city of Le Puy. To get used to it, the route once goes uphill for quite a long time. It takes a long time until the city disappears from view.


In Saint-Christophe-sur-Dolaizon there is a church from the 12th century.

It is built of reddish volcanic rock.

Über Wiesen und Felder

The path leads over meadows and fields. The reddish earth is everywhere.

Chapelle Saint Roche

The Chapelle Saint Roche from the 11th century was originally a church of St. James. Since the 17th century it has been dedicated to Saint Rochus.

Beginn Abstieg im Wäldchen

One last ascent to 1220 m, then it goes through nice little woods towards our destination.


Saint-Privat-d'Allier lies on a rocky spur. The hostel (gite) was already occupied. We had not made a reservation. Luckily we were able to get the very last beds in the nearby Auberge.
