Starting from Conques

Hello all!

Taking my first Camino on the Le Puy route but starting in Conques. Anyone know the best way to get there?

I know Ryanair has flights to Rodez airport but after that I'm stumped!

Thanks,
Chantelli

You could hitch a ride!! (Its about 33km from Rodez airport)

Train: http://www.conques.com/acces.htm says "The Rodez station is 38 km from Conques."

Or taxi.

There appears to be just one bus per day from Rodez to Conques, Monday to Friday.

It looks like a bus leaves the Rodez SNCF station at 16:40, and arrives in Conques at 17:45.
Also, on Wednesdays only, during the school term, there is a bus leaving Rodez at 12:15, arriving in Conques 13:45

There is more detailed info (in French) on the Conques tourism site http://www.conques.fr/ underneath the acces/transports link on the sidebar.

Conques is a beautful small town-justifiably famous throughout France. The large building with the red shutters is where the Pilgrim accommodation is and where the monks taught us the Ultreya song.
