Vézelay (en)

[favorite_button post_id= » » site_id= » »]

Witness of a rich history and a deep spiritual heritage, the basilica Saint Magdalen, perched on the “eternal hill” in Burgundy, dominates a village which has kept its ramparts, its gates and its covered way.

With the relics of Mary-Magdalen, Vézelay became during the 11th century an important place of Christendom as well as a start point for the pilgrimage toward Camino de Santiago.

The basilica, monument of roman architecture, dazzles with its admirable proportions. When you arrive inside the basilica, a surprising light will catch your attention and gives to the edifice an incredible scope. The capitals and the three tympanums create a unique whole by their quality and their message.

Vézelay, classified as a world heritage site by UNESCO, is a living sanctuary and attracts pilgrims, artists and visitors from the whole world.
