Chemin des Abbayes

The trails of Compostelle are not only used by pilgrims, but by other pedestrians and cyclists as well. By foot, on a bicycle or accompanied by a donkey, the 35 kilometres long Chemin des Abbayes invites you to travel through Jura and Côte d’Or. The guiding signs on the trail are represented by a plastic square with a yellow shell on a blue background.

 

Credential

Don’t forget to obtain a credential before your arrival at St Jean de Losne, since you won’t find one at Cluny. You can order it at the website of Les chemins vers Compostelle.

Make a stopover at tourist information center of St Jean de Losne(2 Rue de la liberté) to get your credential stamped. This stamp is indispensable if you want to obtain la Compostella, a document certifying the execution of pilgrimage.
