Vézelay, a unique location steeped in history

Vézelay, a UNESCO World Heritage village, is a starting point for one of the pilgrimage routes to Santiago-de-Compostela, the Via Lemovicensis. The imposing church of the abbey of Vézelay, which became the Basilica of Sainte-Marie Madeleine (Saint Mary Magdalene) in 1920, was one of the most important holy sites in Western Europe in the 12th century. In 1834 Prosper Mérimée devoted himself to the reconstruction of the partially destroyed abbey church of Vézelay. The architect Eugène Viollet-le-Duc undertook the restoration works. During the Second World War, the sisters of Sainte-Madeleine in Vézelay gave refuge to fifteen Jewish girls. A wine growing area since Gallo-Roman times, Vézelay now has a hundred hectares of Chardonnay vines, and obtained AOC and AOP status in 2017.
