DIOIS AND TRIEVES HUGUENOT

On the path of Exile - 7 days


The hike in a glimpse

> Geographical Location: DIOIS / TRIEVES - Halfway between Valence and Grenoble (and halfway from Pole and Equator !)

 

> Natural Area: MOUNTAIN AREA IN PART IN THE NATURAL REGIONAL PARK  OF VERCORS

 

> Maximum altitude hiking: 1457 m

 

> The theme in a nutshell: From the train station of Die, we leave to the discovery of high Diois and Trièves. Their villages have retained all their character, innovative initiatives are numerous, and the mountain is unspoilt, uncrowded, with the history of the Huguenots in the background every day.


In 1685, Louis XIV revoked the Edict of Nantes, causing a mass exodus of mainly Protestants to Switzerland and Germany.

 

Today the trail "In the Footsteps of the Huguenots" takes over a 1600 km route of exile from the Drôme to Germany.

 

Despite the revocation of the Edict, the deep religious roots and is strongly pace life of the southern regions. The weight and influence of Protestantism remain throughout the eighteenth century. Today, the temples are at the heart of the cantons, and Protestant communities retain their identity.

 

We suggest you walk between Die (26) Mens (38), the time for a week in the footsteps of the Huguenots, and meet various aspects and witnesses with whom we discuss the history of Protestantism in Diois-Trièves through the centuries. Much of this hike takes place in the Vercors Regional Natural Park.
