The Camino de Santiago, also known as the "Pilgrimage of Compostela" or the Way of Saint James is a network of pilgrims' paths travelled as a pilgrimage to the shrine of the apostle Saint James the Great in the cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Galicia in northwestern Spain, where legend has it that the remains of the saint are buried. Many follow its routes as a form of spiritual path or retreat for their spiritual growth. It is also popular with hiking and cycling enthusiasts and organized tour groups. The French Way (Camino Francés) and the Routes of Northern Spain are the courses which are listed in the World Heritage List by UNESCO. This is a multi week long hike that can be done at a variety of paces and with a variety of starting points.

C'est un magnifique sentier qui traverse le parc national des Calanques. Il peut y avoir beaucoup de monde en haute saison, mais beaucoup de gens ne se rendent que dans la première baie / Calanque et s’y arrêtent.

The natural arches, the crisp blue waters and the white cliffs make this walk unique. Follow the white pebble beach to admire these three natural arches. The cliff lacks balustrades, so this path is not suitable for young children.Show more

Ce magnifique sentier autour du lac d'Annecy peut être faite dans les deux sens et peut facilement être transformée en une promenade beaucoup plus courte sur seulement une partie du sentier. Il y a beaucoup de points de départ en chemin avec beaucoup de choses à voir et beaucoup de toilettes et d’endroits pour se reposer. Veuillez noter que certaines portions de l'itinéraire sont simplement des routes pavées traversant la ville. Cela est particulièrement vrai dans la partie sud-est.Show more
