Guided visit of the Roman basilica dedicated to Sainte Mary Madeleine.  In the 12th century, the appearance of the relics of Mary Magdalene made Vézelay one of the most revered places in Christianity and, in 1146, St Bernard had just advocated the second crusade.

At the bottom the Basilica is one of the most beautiful villages of France, a sanctuary, a delicious white wine, a place for the pilgrim to start from on the road to St. Jacques de Compostelle and the gateway to the Morvan region.
