From the city of Maintenon, the arches of the aqueduct set the atmosphere of this itinerary. It is followed by small roads along the Eure Valley that offer a bucolic and relaxing landscape. A must-see stop on the traditional Santiago de Compostela Way, Chartres overlooked by its cathedral, a jewel of Gothic art, symbolically crowns the stopover on this pilgrimage by bicycle.
