The Way of St. James Switzerland


The Way of St. James SwitzerlandLocation : Switzerland

Pilgrimage to the sacred places is an important part of life for centuries. The Way of St. James was one of the most important Christian pilgrimages during medieval times. Millions of people walk towards St. James by foot through Switzerland and from France to Santiago de Compostela. The Swiss part of the way to St. James takes slightly different routes. It starts with Constance or St. Gallen which leads to Zurich, Lucerne, Interlaken, Bern, Fribourg, Lausanne and Geneva. You can visit some of the traditional pilgrim stations along the way which are popular with tourists because of their history and decorative architecture. Some of the famous pilgrimages include The chapel of Bernrain near Kreuzlingen which is famous for its story of "mircale of the nose". The monastery of St.Gallen, The black Madonna at Einsiedeln, The Romanesque churches on the shores of lake Thun, the ruins of the priorate of Cluny at Rueggisberg , The 1000-year old abbey church at Payerne, The charming little towns of Romont and Moudon and finally The Lausanne, whose magnificent cathedral has seen popes and kings bend their knees. The Swiss portion of the pilgrimage ends with a boat trip from Lausanne to Geneva. Switzerland has one of the most developed networks of public transportation. Any part of The Way of St. James can be traveled by boat, train or bus through out the year.
