Behind the scenes
« Sur les Pas des Huguenots », know as "Sur les Pas des Huguenots et des Vaudois" in Switzerland and Germany, is a cooperative project carried out through the framework of the European LEADER program. It includes diverse territories in Germany, Italy and France, as well as institutional and private partners in Switzerland, Italy, Germany and France.
The aim of the project is the creation of an international long distance trail that follows the historical path of exiled Huguenots from the Dauphinois towards Germany and Switzerland after the revocation of the Edict of Nantes (1685-1690). This also includes the creation of two itineraries from Italy towards Switzerland : one for the exodus and one for the glorious return of the Piedmont Waldensians.
