The journey through time begins in Landry. This typical village is home to a jewel of Baroque art. Here you can admire the sublime bulbous bell tower of the church which, like all churches built on a promontory, bears the name of Saint-Michel. Then follow in the footsteps of the GR5, before reaching the start of the tour. You will go through several authentic villages, including Martorey and its superb listed column house, following one of the oldest mule tracks in the valley. In the past, peddlers used these routes to transport goods. Now you carry your own picnic! Refresh yourself at the bend in the Charbonnet stream before arriving at Ragairon, which signals its presence with its only chalet and mountain pasture stable. Stop to contemplate the clear view and watch the bees gathering flowers in the mountains. Another must-see stop before returning: the hamlet of Les Charmettes where it is not unusual to see cows grazing.
