In the footsteps of the Huguenots is a path which crosses all of Switzerland. It traces the life of the Huguenots since 1598.
Four days is the time it takes to walk the 76 km of the Huguenot Trail in Vaud. At the time, the valley of the Broye was a corridor which could easily be blocked. The Bernese insisted and ordered that the passage be made elsewhere. In Lausanne, which had seven thousand inhabitants at the end of the 17th century, two thousand refugees had to be fed and housed. The population was reluctant. From Morges, where the refugees landed, the road goes into the countryside following the streams to reach the shores of Lake Neuchâtel in Yverdon-les-Bains. In the valley of the hills, you can admire the Romanesque style of the Romainmôtier Abbey.
This route is a tribute to these refugees. Secular and interfaith, it is a path of tolerance you can follow, which opens your eyes on history.
