On the steps of the Huguenots

In 1685, the King Louis XIV revoked the edict of Nantes and a climate of persecution set up in France. 200 000 "Huguenots" sought refuge in protestant lands in Europe and all over the world. In Dauphiné, where there was the Reformation, many protestants left for Genève then Germany where they’ve been welcomed and they founded their community. All its 1600m long, the international path « On the steps of the Huguenots » most closely follows the historical route of this exile. From Poet Laval in Drôme, the route goes through Genève, crosses Switzerland, Baden-Württemberg and Hesse until Bad Karlshafen. The length crossing France has been ratified as GR®965 and is composed of 29 stages for 374km long.

2 stages crosses Matheysine (Mens - La Mure ; La Mure - Laffrey).
