All of these stops are now celebrated by tourists who believe that followings her journey brings the great moments of French history back to life.
On each route and village between Domremy and Chinon, through Vaucouleurs, Auxerre, and Gien, one finds all types of tourists. Curious passerbys and even amateur historians come to follow in the footsteps of the “shepherd” of Domremy. People come as far as Canada, according to the owner of the Hotel de Vaucouleurs.
