Routes through history

They wind their way across Languedoc, and have been walked since the beginning of time. Roman roads and the Santiago de Compostela pilgrim route bear witness to the long history of southern France.
Not only are there roads across the land, there are also historic waterways, and what better example than the Canal du Midi?
Here are some suggested routes across Languedoc that will transport you back in time and take you deep into the local landscape.
  • Following the route to Santiago de Compostela, in the footsteps of the pilgrims of bygone days, is an invitation to travel not only through space – some 260 km – but also through time.

  • The Canal du Midi and the Fonséranes locks are included on UNESCO’s World Heritage list, and are real gems that shouldn’t be missed when you visit the South of France.

  • This is one of the most famous Roman roads. It crosses the Hérault area from east to west, connecting the various Roman towns of the era, and continues into Spain.
