I am considering walking the Arles Camino and have reached Toulouse in the planning stage. The Camino turns north west and heads for the Pyrenees and Jaca(!). Looking at maps and guides I have come across the area south and west of Toulouse in the Pyrénées-Orientales and am intrigued. Places like Saint -André-de-Sorède, Saint-Génis-des-Fontaines, Saint Michel-de-Cuxa, Saint Martin-du-Canigou for example. Two separate areas propably not connected by a GR or a lesser known Camino. Does anyone have have any knowledge of the area? Where to look? I have a wonderful publication of the Quest France publishers intended for driving no help for walkers. I would be happy to hear from you all and anything at all youall might know. Thanks again
Scruffy

You could start with Peter Robins map at zoom level 9 http://maps.peterrobins.co.uk/f/overview/toulouse.html

We did the Arles route over three years using mainly the Miam Miam Dodo guide. I can't think of any part I would like to omit. One of my favorites was over the Pyrenees, and particularly, San Juan de la Pena just beyond Jaca.

Thank you so very much. In my library I have several books from the Quest France publishers, Romanesque Art in Languedoc-Roussillon, Abbeys of Burgundy, Roanesque Art in Midi-Pyrenees , another on Conques lovely photographs, enough information to decide if and when to visit but no maps no trails few roads. Time to go to work! I enjoy the maps, the decisions which when to go, almost as much as actually walking.

Thank you backpack! MMD is a must and I'm not considering to omit ever, always looking for a sidetrip, a walkabout, something just off the margins of the guides and recommendations.

I just did a search on the first book mentioned and also one on Quest France publishers, but came up empty handed. I also searched on google.fr

Could you send me ISBN number or a link to the publisher's' site. Thanks..

You can find any of the others there, all in French, my schoolbboy French all but unused these past 45 years was more than enough to understand the texts.

Thanks, Scruffy. I just ordered it. Romanesque architecture was kind of the plain-jane sister of the Gothic style when I studied European art history. I have been studying French in my retirement and I look forward to tackling the French text.

Hello. I plan to walk the route from Arles as from end of August. Was there any particular reason why you began in Toulouse... I rather want to pass St Guilhem le Desert. I realise that there are some industrial estates on the way into and out of Montpellier....

Just wanted to say that the new Miam Miam Dodo 2016/17 is available directly from the publishers. Do you recommend another guide as well for the history etc?
