Place St-Jacques

Number 10 of the historical tour

The St James Compostela way leads across Europe to the tomb of St James the Greater in the cathedral of Santiago de Compostela. Romont is 2,000 km from this city in Galicia (Spain). Numerous pilgrims leaving from eastern Europe or Germany stop here. The St-Jacques Square owes its name to the Auberge du Saint-Jacques (today: the Post) which welcomed pilgrims and travellers between the 16th century and 1956. A niche (at the end of the bus shelter) houses a statue of the Saint created by the French sculptor Georges Jeanclos.

Women used to come not only to wash their laundry at the fountain but also to gossip.
