The Vezelay Way, Chemin de Vézelay in French or Via Lemovicensis in Latin #vialemovicensis, is one of the classic Camino de Santiago routes across France. This Camino takes walkers from the vineyards of Burgundy in central France to the feet of the Pyrenees in the French-Spanish border.
The pretty little town of Vézelay in Burgundy is the starting point of this Camino de Santiago route. Vézelay has been a popular destination for pilgrims visiting the shrine of Mary Magdalene, whose relics are reputedly kept in its magnificent basilica. The route then continues across the hills of the Limousin region, the gorgeous medieval city of Limoges, the valleys of the Périgord and the plains of Aquitaine and the Landes. This Camino route is rich in history and home five magnificent UNESCO listed heritage sites.
You will enter Saint Jean Pied de Port by the Saint James Gate and here you can join other pilgrims on the French Way to Santiago de Compostela. Read more Vezelay Way Camino articles on our blog.
