In the morning we leave Cahors via the famous Pont Valentré. Immediately afterwards, a steep ascent begins, over many steps and steep paths.
These are the last steps, then the ascent is done.
From the top there is a magnificent view of Cahors, the bridge and the old town.
After the ascent and a break to admire the view, the route continues on asphalt roads to the ...
... Gite de Mathieux, a comfortable pilgrim hostel with swimming pool. But we are only refilling our water supplies.
An impressive video on their homepage introduces the handicapped accessible pilgrim hostel and how disabled people are transported during the pilgrimage.
It goes downhill and uphill, but now always on forest tracks.
Before the village of Labastide - Marnhac we stop for lunch, then we cross the village and pass the church and gite.
Over small streets ...
... and forest paths lead our way.
Another 4 km to Lascabanes and 13.7 to Montcuq.
The place Lascabanes comes into sight.
They were very excited about the passing pilgrims.
We pass through Lascabanes ...
... and go to church. There is a gite.
Jean d' Arc
The statue of the Virgin Mary in front of the church is so beautifully kitschy that it is worth a photo.
The chapel of Saint Jean de Lascabanes is located on a hill above Lascabanes in a forest.
