Tomorrow in Conques

Camino Le Puy
We've been walking this route from Le Puy for 9 days. Tomorrow will be in Conques and it will be exact 200kms.

We love very much Le Puy because it's beautiful and sporty and also struggling sometimes.

We've met so many English speakers from all over the world and french people speak English also very good.

You can always find a bed by the end of the day, and they are extremely clean.

Good weather, challenging route, nice people, super gites.

Only thing is on Sunday 99% of the shops and restaurants and servers are close. Little bit stressful.

But like what I've said, it's a wonderful walking experience.

Well done! You are in for a treat in Conques and, for that matter, all along the way. If you have time, do consider the Cele Valley variant.
Bon Chemin!

Thanks Duayne. We keep walking to Pamplona, probably Puente la Reina if the weather allows us going up to see the status again.

Its a simply glorious Way @Jun Meng and I do hope you continue to enjoy it. It does get difficult when the shops are closed on Sundays - and often Mondays as well - which is why we tried to get "demi-pension" whenever we could. I walked the traditional route one year (most enjoyable), and the Cele Valley route the next - the Cele is beautiful but we met not even one other pilgrim until we rejoined the main route.

Last year I walked the road into Conques. Something different, on the path you turn left and go down a forest valley track and don't see Conques much until you get there. The road is longer but higher and you approach Conques from above with great open views of the town and also have views of the surrounding valleys.

My preference only, I like to see out more so walk outside the trees and forests at times. I departed from the GR65 quite often as in this case for a better view of the town and surrounding area.

Bon Chemin

On the Chemin Le Puy, timing seems to be a big factor. I started walking it mid-August and met very few people who spoke English. Through the Chemin grapevine I heard that there were many more pilgrims from English-speaking countries who started a few weeks after I did.

Beautiful route, wonderful French food and loads of history for those who are interested. Highly recommend.

What I've experienced now, yes. More English speakers and the French people speak also English. It's very beautiful.

Do stay 2 nights in Conques to see the light show on the Cathedral, and hear the Monks play the organ ....the municipal auberge is one of the best, clean and well maintained. It has glowworms in the garden, and lines to dry laundry.
