IntroductionThe hilltop village of Vezelay was home to relics of Mary Magdalene during the 12th century, and as such, it has become an important pilgrimage destination along the Saint-Jacques de Compostelle pilgrimage path. Climbing the hill towards the town's 11th-century basilica is an inspiring experience, with beautiful views. Examine the medieval houses along the main street of the village, and taste the local Vezelay Burgundy wine, made from grapes that grow along the edge of town. Most of the Vezelay wines are white wines.
