Vézelay

The Essential
Highly recommended
On the edge of the Morvan, Vézelay stands on the slopes and on top of a hill overlooking the Cure valley. In the days when the Santiago de Compostela pilgrimage was at its height, the town would accommodate up to 10 000 people in houses huddled along the steep little streets. Saved from ruin by Mérimée and the young architect Viollet-le-Duc, this spiritual centre, an important site in the history of art, has featured since 1979 on Unesco's World Heritage list.
