The remarkable scenery of the Pas Saint-Martin has its own legend which gave the place its name.

The long and short history

St Martin would come to preach and convert the region around the 4th and 5th century. And this is said to be the pass to which we should attribute the legend of Pas Saint-Martin.
It was here that Saint Martin found himself confronted by a demon. Riding a mule, the saint fled into the mountains, where the demon forced them to the top of the cliff, near the valley now called "Pas Saint-Martin". The mule, in a single bound, leapt across the valley to come to rest on the opposite side. A rock contains a footprint in the shape of a horse's hoof.

Practical information

Pas Saint-Martin is located between Bouze-les-Beaune, Nantoux and Mavilly-[Colin Rog1] Mandelot. Various circuits pass nearby, including the circuit called « Le sentier des biques » ( "The goat path".).
