Monks’ pathway

The Monk’s pathway allegedly owes its name to the strong bonds between the abbeys of Citeaux and Cluny, in the 12th century. Very well-known locally, it enables to link on foot the Church of Saint-Martin-de-Laives, near Sennecey-le-Grand, to Cenves, located in the Rhône region, passing through Cluny where it joins the Pilgrim’s Way to Saint James. To give you a taste of what awaits you in terms of long course roaming...

This mountain route connecting Tournus and Cluny is a "mythical" trail. It is somewhat surprising that the monks walked on it time after time between Cluny, Beaumont-sur-Grosne, Chalon-sur-Saône, Paris! By all accounts, it is an easy itinerary which avoids as much as possible uphill and downhill ways. It offers nice discoveries and beautiful panoramas (that’s the reward).
