A wonderful basilica, perched high in the lovely town of Vezelay. It must not be missed if you are in the area.

This is a fantastic Romanesque church in the heart of Burgundy. Set high on a hill with commanding views of the valley below. You walk up hill through a reasonably well preserved medieval town of Vezelay to get to the church. Fantastic architecture... just on the cusp of late Romanesque transitioning to Gothic. Austere and beautiful... and a cool place to linger on a warm day. One of the highlights of Burgundy.

This is an amazing building sitting on top of a hill. Walking up the streets to it you pass many interesting buildings seeped in history, as well as a good selection of shops and restaurants/bars. The significance of this religious basilica cannot be understated. It is THE place for pilgrims to go to. The summer hosts a wide variety of activities including some beautiful music by renowned opera singers. Don't miss visiting this wonderful building and seeing the fantastic view all around the area from it's gardens.

A tiny village in the heart of France is breathtakingly beautiful! Just over 470 residents, with numerous quaint little cafés, restaurants and hotels. The Basilique is steeped in culture and history. Entrance is free. Views are incredible.

This is one of the most beautiful churches in the world. Take your time for a visit. Stay over night and visit the church a various moments of the day. The changing lighting is crucial. And do not forget to walk over to the terrace, for a pick-nick and an evening stroll.
