Vezelay

Updated: Oct 30, 2023


Facing the Morvan mountains atop a steep hill, the Sainte-Madeleine basilica majestically overlooks the winemakers' houses and Renaissance residences. This masterpiece of Romanesque art, restored in the 19th century by Viollet-le-Duc, makes Vézelay a significant pilgrimage site and a starting point for the journey to Compostela.
