Vézelay : Michelin's recommendations
On the edge of the Morvan, Vézelay, with its sublime Romanesque basilica, stands on the top of a hill overlooking the Cure valley. Vézelay's charms are well deserved. «They are revealed to people strolling around, to the brave and to lovers; every detail, stone, every ray of light enhances their faith in the eternal hill». An important stage on the Compostelle pilgrimage route, Vézelay is so close to the spirit that a number of writers made it their home.
