UNESCO designated a collection of 78 structures under the name "Routes of Santiago de Compostela in France" as a World Heritage Site in December 1998.[1]

Sites[edit]

The sites included in the UNESCO designation are largely monuments, churches, or hospitals that provided services to pilgrims headed to Santiago de Compostela in Spain. Some are places of pilgrimage in their own right. Other structures include a tower, bridges, a city gate, and a prehistoric stone construction.[2]
