Long Description:

The GR® 655-Ouest is the Saint-Jacques road that connects Paris-Chartres-Vendôme-Tours in Loir-et-Cher, along the Loir Valley. The GR® 655-Est is the road to Saint-Jacques Rive gauche, by the rise, along the Loire, and cross Saint-Laurent-Nouan, Nouan-sur-Loire, Muides-sur-Loire ...

Also called "the via Turonensis" (or way of Tours / way of Paris) is one of the four paths of France of the pilgrimage of Saint-Jacques-de-Compostelle, the most to the north. The most serene and oldest way, it was historically the busiest.

From Brussels, the GR® 655 trail using the route of the old pilgrimage routes, is marked by important stages: ancient abbeys, basilicas, such as those of Saint-Quentin and Saint-Denis, famous cathedrals like those from Noyon, Senlis, Paris, Chartres, Orleans or Tours.

The church was a place of pilgrimage on the road to Santiago de Compostela, on the edge of this path.
