Santiago de Compostela

The Petite Camargue is crossed by the three most important European pilgrimage routes, the one that leads to Rome, known as “camin roumieu”, the “camin francigène” after Arles that leads to Jerusalem by sea passing by Saint-Gilles and Aigues-Mortes, and the one leading to Santiago de Compostela, known as the Via Tolosana at the time of the County of Toulouse, then the Arles Route after the arrival of Louis IX in the bay of Aigues-Mortes. The three are connected to the Regordane Route that went from Massif Central to Saint-Gilles.
