One of the main routes on the Way of Saint James in France starting in famous Le Vezelay in Burgundy and heading towards Saint Jean Pied de Port, via Bourges, the Cher Valley, the Creuse River and Limousin, the Perigord and the Pinewood forest of Gascony, before reaching the Basque Country, 900 km later.

The part most frequented of this itinerary starts from Le Vezelay and gets to Limoges or Perigueux. After Perigueux the Vezelay Itinerary gradually enters the largest pine-wood forest of Europe for several km and stages.

Then  it crosses the Landes department and Bearn area and reaches Ostabat and St-Jean-Pied-de-Port more than 40 days later.
