Our museum is just next to the Way of St.-James leading through Lausanne. Occasionally some pilgrims on their way to Santiago di Compostella in Galicia, Spain, also find their way to our museum. Needless to say that shoes where and still are the main means of locomotion for the pilgrims. Today we had the visit of two special pilgrims from the Netherlands, both also well initiated in the art of medieval shoe making. Occasionally you can encounter them at the archaeological park ARCHEON in Alphen a/d Rijn. For us it was a surprise visit of fellow shoemakers, for them a special discovery. We sat for hours and talked about medieval shoes and medieval shoe making.
