Note: Argenton-sur-Creuse is one of the pilgrimage sites on route to the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela, home of the shrine dedicated to Saint James, the patron saint of Spain. The symbol of Saint James, the scalloped shell, became the primary symbol representing pilgrims. French pilgrimage routes to Compostela tend to follow old Roman roads, many of which continued to be utilized as primary roads of communication during the Middle Ages. It received its name from the Gallo-Roman city of Argentomagus. Its historic sites include the Priory Church of Saint-√Čtienne and a castle.
