Vézelay and the Historic Walk

Caring for hike on the pilgrims' path to Compostela and the traces of yesteryear.

Historical walk

Relive the millennial experience of pilgrims, the ascent on foot to the Basilica and the great moments in the history of Vézelay.

From the village of Asquins, walk the same steep paths as the thousands of pilgrims marching towards Compostela ... follow their footsteps through the vineyard path and the ramparts, tread the soil of the Crusaders forming an assembly around of Saint-Bernard in 1146. Discover magnificent views on the surroundings, taste the silence and the peace of the Cordelle… With the guide, enter history in a simple and lively way by evoking the great figures of Vézelay along the way.
