The Camino Le Puy Way stage 5 meanders through the regions of La Gers and Gascony. This region is renowned for its gastronomy. Throughout the surrounding countryside are vineyards as this region is well-known for its Armagnac and floc, an aperitif which has had the same recipe since the 16th century. The heart of Gascony is also famous for the Dukes of Gascony and Alexandre Dumas, the novelist who wrote the Three Musketeers and immortalized the hero D’Artagnan. Midway through your tour you stay in Montreal du Gers, one of the Most Beautiful Villages in France and a traditional bastide town.
You can either complete Stage 5 of this pilgrimage route as a self-guided walking tour in its own right, or you may complete more or all of the sections at the same time. This particular section is graded as easy to moderate, however there is one very long walking day of 28km on day 7. You will stay in comfortable hotels whilst enjoying the camaraderie of fellow pilgrims and travellers.
