We have already gone into partnership with a few patron companies interested by our project. We could not have started it without their support.

We wish to thank them warmly.

We have also met many managers in charge of culture and environment in city halls of towns and villages concerned by our project, as well as directors in General Councils for the Landes, Pyrénées Atlantiques and Hautes Pyrénées departments, as well as the Regional Committee for Pedestrian Hiking. We thank them all for their kind welcome, their advice and technical help.

Moreover, we have also met the Church representatives of the above named departments. We are thankful to them for their interest in our project. Their counsels and information allowed us to define an itinerary rich in valuable monuments, as far as religion and history are concerned. The final stage of the “Voie de Lourdes” will allow those who wish it, to walk on this trail while respecting the traditions of pilgrimage.

At last, we thank all the people we have already met during our numerous trips on this trail for the warm welcome and the numerous pieces of advice and information they gave us.
