The aim of our association is to promote and develop the St James route of Santiago de Compostela, to make it better known and to help and asvise the pilgrims. In 1987, the Conseil de l'Europe initiated its programme Saint-James route, one of the european cultural itineraries whose essential values are tolerace, respect of others, freedom and solidarity.
Our associations objectives are :
- To advises an falicitate the preparation and the good progress of the pilgrims during their journey on the route of St James.
- To plan in the Franche-Comté the route of St James in collaboration with the European itineraries.
- To establish an inventory of the St James inheritance in the region ; to develop and encourage contacts with all researchers in this field.
- To tie and maintain relationships with french and foreign associations pursuing the same goals.
The complition of such a path is a long term project. The present situation could not have been achieved without the backing of the Conseils Généraux and also that of Gaz de France. Progress is also thanks to the AF-CCC and the FFR (Fédération Française de Ranbdonnée) volunteers and the support of communities an townships.
