Sub-prefecture of Vosges (88)
Population: 19,800 (Déodatiens and Déodatiennes), 77,000 within the 77 communes comprising the Greater Saint-Dié-des-Vosges municipality

“Saint-Dié’s surroundings seem ideal for the walker and the tourist: on all sides, there are cool valleys crowned by beautiful fir forests...” wrote Théophile Gautier in 1860. The description by the author of the adventure novel Captain Fracasse has not aged a bit. Even better: 380km of marked paths allow you to meander through the magnificent forests that cover more than half of the commune’s surface area and amply justify the suffix “des Vosges” with which it has since been adorned. The green lung will welcome the women’s Tour on July 28 and 29
