GR36GR36

The trail starts on the Normandian coast, near Caen. It runs south to Le Mans and continues south to Angoulême, Carcasonne, and Bourg-Madame in the Pyrenees. Here it crosses into Spain, at the village of Puigcerda. If a living person ever did this entire trail, he or she crossed half the country and walked through La Suisse Normande, the Pyrenees and the Périgord.
