Our family spent several days in Vezelay in July 2014 and our visit to "La Maison du Visiteur" was one of the highlights of our stay. Located a short distance down the hill from the Basilica, this "visitor's house" is a very special place. Expect to spend about an hour or so here before you make your visit to the... More

A stop in the quaint town of Vezelay while on your day trip through Burgundy is a must. Once there, and before you enter the basilica, stop by the visitor center to learn about the basilica's history and the importance of light. Our guide was very informative and welcoming. We could have spent another hour w/ him. We will surely... More

And the model and plan downstairs allow you to experience... More

For anyone looking for a unically sublime place, visiting the Vezlay Basilica is surely a highly emotional and spiritual moment. Preparing and sharing the visit with the guides of La Maison du Visiteur has helped me have a much better understanding of what the Balisica still offers nearly a millenium after it was built.The guides of the maison du Visiteur...

One cannot deny, regardless of whichever religious beliefs one holds, that Vézelay's Basilica of St Magdelene is a truly spiritual, mystical place. It is also part of the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites, and so deserves to be! One could spend years admiring this basilica, as it evolves through the seasons, through the many lights. A definite stop is... More

Vézelay is a must stop-over if you are taking a trip through Burgundy. A full day is required to leisurely visit this beautiful city. You just leave your car at the foot of the "Colline Inspirée" and stroll your way up the Main Street to the Basilica. Half way up make sure you stop at the Maison du Visiteur and... More
