The Guyenne-Gascogny Cluniac walk (chemin clunisien de Guyenne-Gascogne)

Since 2011 the association has been involved in the creation of the Guyenne-Gascogny Cluniac walk, with the support of various communal representatives. The walk is around 100 km long, links the commune of Agen to that of Moissac and crosses a total of 25 communes in two regions: Aquitaine and Midi-Pyrenees. On the route are four important Cluniac sites: the abbeys of Moissac and Saint Maurin and the priories of Layrac and Moirax. Our Cluniac route constitutes one part of the Major Cultural Routes of the Council of Europe. Two other regions, the Auvergne and the Jura, have begun creating their own Cluniac routes.
