Way Markers

I am planning to walk a little of this route either side of Marciac at Christmas. How good are the waymarks? And is there an app and where could I find the route in gpx form for my phone?

Many thanks in anticipation.

Again, soon as possible!
I don't think Marciac is actually on the Le Puy route (Via Podiensis). The Le Puy route runs about 25-30km North of Marciac through Aire Sur l'Adoure (Condom - Eauze - Nogaro - Aire Sur l'Adour - Arzacq-Arraziguet - Arthez de Bearn - Naverrenx).

Not sure about around Marciac at all, but the route above is extremely well marked. It is a very pretty stretch.

Davey - thank you. As soon as I sent the email I think I realised my mistake!!! What confused me was visiting Marciac in the summer and in a church that I popped into there was a huge display about the Chemin Le Puy - so my assumption was that it was on the route. Will undoubtedly find somewhere to walk but probably not the Le Puy.

Having looked further at Marciac the route is the Way of Arles. Thanks for your help.
Ok! That makes sense. Not walked Arles route yet so didn't know.

But it is interesting that at Marciac the two routes are only a days walk apart, so a pilgrim could switch routes if wished.

The Arles route, and all the other GR long-distance routes in France, are carefully marked on the IPhiGenie app, showing route and topo at very good scale.

Just downloaded the app and had a play. It looks really very good so thank you again.

@Simon B , kia ora (greetings, good health)

You may also care to look at WayMarkedTrails. It just opens in a browser and you zoom into any known point along the route to see the route itself. Also known as GR 653 and Via Tolosona.

Kia kaha (take, care, be strong, get going)
