From Carcassonne to Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port : 21 to 26 walking days and 590 km.
This Pyrenean itinarary crosses the departments of the Aude, Ariège, Haute-Garonne, Hautes-Pyrénées and the Pyrénées-Atlantiques

During the Middle Ages, coming from Montpellier, the italian Piedmont or the Provence, many pilgrims stayed close to the Pyrenees, in order to cross them as soon as possible.

The Pyrenean Piedmont track crosses the Ariège, heading from Mirepoix to the Col de Portet d'Aspet in the direction of Saint-Bertrand de Comminges. This 140 km crossing can be performed in 15 to 20 km stages.
