Full Description

Spanish Steps is excited to be offering a very special journey along the Camino de Santiago in France to the Cathedral of Chartres, one of UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites. During the middle-ages, the Chartres Cathedral and the Sancta Camisa became one of the most popular pilgrimage destinations. This route is part of the Via Turonensis, originating in Brussels and passing by the famous gathering point of Tour St. Jacques in Paris, onward to Chartres, Tours, Bordeaux, Saint Jean Pied Port and later, Santiago de Compostela.

We begin our pilgrimage by meeting in Versailles (to avoid walking through urban Paris) at the Chantiers Train Station. Our walk begins in the nearby town of Igny where the trails lead us through glorious countryside, small villages, and dense royal forests. The pilgrimage ends at the Cathedral of Our Lady of Chartres with a special walk of the 13th-century labyrinth and a guided tour with a local historian.

The journey will be led by our team at Spanish Steps along with Mary Ellen Johnson.
