St Jacques de Compostelle Trail
GR65 : Topoguide ref. 651
SECTION of the Le Puy – Figeac trail

According to the St Jacques de Compostelle pilgrim’s guide, written around the year 1140, 'there are four roads leading to St Jacques'.
The selected section crosses the Margeride:
A crystalline and metamorphic rock mass was brutally broken and from this fracture sprang the 1551m high 'Montagne' in the centre of the massif. This heavy granite mass is several kilometres wide and covers an area measuring more than 50km. It towers over a hilly landscape with soft peaks which have been worn down by constant erosion.
