THE SALT ROUTE AUVERGNE - CAMARGUE (13–16 MAY 2021)

From the Auvergne to the Camargue in the footsteps of salt merchants since the Middle Ages.

The salt road from the Camargue to Rouergue is a trade route that was used from prehistoric times until the middle of the 19th century. It was a source of income both from the sale of the salt itself and from the taxes it generated (toll, octroi and gabelle).

This link is none other than the route used in the 10th century by mule caravans to transport, from the Rouergue to the shores of the Mediterranean, woods of exceptional resistance for building boats. On the way back, the convoys, also made up of horse or ox-drawn carriages, brought back sacks of salt, a real "white gold" used in the packaging and preservation of food.

It is this historical route that we propose to go up from the Auvergne to the Camargue through exceptional landscapes and places, such as CONQUES, which are also part of a great tradition: The Routes of Saint Jacques de Compostelle.

picto step2 93x40- WEDNESDAY 13 JULY: LAGLIOLE - CONQUES - MEYRUEIS

A beautiful stopover in the heart of the Aubrac.

  • We will cross the Routes de Saint-Jacques to Conques.
    Throughout the Middle Ages, Conques was an important sanctuary where
    the relics of the skull of Saint Foy were venerated. It is famous for its abbey church,
    whose architecture and sculptures on the porch are remarkable, and its treasure,
    notably the golden statue of Saint Foy. Since the 20th century, it has been declared
    a "major stopover" on the road to Santiago de Compostela (Via Podiensis) because it is mentioned
    in the last book of the Codex Calixtinus, which was practically unknown until its Latin edition in 1882.
    It is also a village classified by the association Les plus beaux villages de France.
  • Aubrac is a French volcanic and granite plateau situated in the south-central part of the Massif Central
    and on the borders of the three departments of Aveyron, Cantal and Lozère.
    We will taste the great speciality "L'ALIGOT".
  • The sublime Gorges of the Tarn will be a new stage of pleasure for the eyes and the driving.
  • The evening stage will take place at the approach of the Cevennes in an astonishing
    Château in Meyrueis.

picto step3 93x40- THURSDAY 14 MAY: MEYRUELS - CIRQUE DE NAVACELLE - AIGUES-MORTES

The great Cévennes stage.

  • The wild roads that have made the history of Motorsport. The impressive Cirque de Navacelles and so many other
    breathtaking places. It is formed by a meander cut by the river Vis in impressive gorges between the Causse du Larzac
    in the south (Saint-Maurice-Navacelles, Hérault) and the Causse de Blandas in the north (Blandas, Gard).
    The hamlet of Navacelles, shared between the two communes and the two departments, is located near the
    crossing point of the meander marked by a waterfall.
  • We will finish this Road Trip in the Camargue in the City of AIGUES MORTES.
    Founded in the 13th century by Saint Louis with the aim of developing trade with Italy and the East, Aigues-Mortes,
    the first Mediterranean port of the Kingdom of France, today reveals a particularly well-preserved architectural ensemble.
    Situated in the heart of the Camargue Gardoise, the town of Aigues-Mortes looks like a medieval fortress, with its
    1634 metres of ramparts, its fortified gates, its twenty towers and its covered way. Highest tower of Aigues-Mortes
    the tower of Constance, a former prison, of a height of 30 meters, offers from the top of its terrace a beautiful sight
    on the vast expanses of the Camargue.
  • A lunch, prize-giving ceremony will end this beautiful journey along the SALT ROUTE.
