A church, a school, a café, several small hotels or chambres d’hôtes—Saint-Chély-d’Aubrac is the quintessential rural French village, oozing with medieval charm and the perfect place to stop for the second night while walking from Aumont-Aubrac to Figeac on the Chemin de Saint-Jacques du-Puy.
Our home for the night was la Tour des Chapelains—a tower built around 1475 to shelter the monks who worked in the nearby fields. The spiral steps leading up to our rooms have been worn smooth by thousands of footsteps over the past five hundred years and these thick walls, I am sure, will be sheltering pilgrims well into the future.
