The History Themed Walk

A hiking in the footsteps of yesteryear.

Historical walk

With La Marche Historique, relive the millennial experience of pilgrims, the walk to the Basilica and the great moments of the history of Vézelay.

From the village of Asquins, walk the same steep paths as the thousands of pilgrims on their way to Compostela ... walk in their footsteps through the vineyard trail and the ramparts, tread the Crusaders' soil forming an assembly around Saint-Bernard in 1146 ,

Discover magnificent views of the surrounding area, enjoy the silence and peace of the Cordelle site ... with the guide, enter the story in a simple and lively way by evoking on the way the great figures of Vézelay.
