Le Sentier des Huguenots

A crossing of the canton of Vaud along the historic path of the Huguenots, forced to flee their country under the pressure of the war of religions of the 16th century.

Four days is the time it takes to walk the 76 km of the Huguenot Trail in the Vaud region. At the time, the Broye Valley was a congested corridor. The Bernese put a stop to it 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 is reluctant. From Morges, where the refugees landed, the path leads into the countryside along the streams to reach the shores of Lake Neuchâtel in Yverdon-les-Bains. A stop in the hollow of the hills and we admire the Romanesque style of the abbey church of Romainmôtier.
