  • The visit of this Basilica is essential. What impression of serenity. A beautiful place that deserves to dwell at length. Lavish Gothic style.

  • For the umpteenth visit to Vezelay, it was cold and there was wind. But the decryption prevails. Exceptional place.

  • Visit, in silent e, the heart and the short silence the brothers and sisters of the community are to meet. Kudos to the father of Dijon, who did his homily on December 31 in the crypt
