The Vezelay Way, Chemin de Vézelay in French or Via Lemovicensis in Latin, takes walkers from the vineyards of Burgundy in central France to the feet of the Pyrenees in the Spanish border.

The pretty little medieval town of Vézelay in Burgundy is the starting point of this trail, one of the most traditional Camino de Santiago routes in France. Vézelay has been a popular destination for pilgrims for many centuries, attracted by the shrine and relics of Mary Magdalene, reputedly kept in the town’s magnificent UNESCO-listed abbey. The Vezelay Way then takes pilgrims across the lush hills of the Limousin region, the gorgeous Medieval city of Limoges, the valleys of the Périgord and the plains of Aquitaine and the Landes.

Your journey on the Vezelay Camino will take you to the Saint James Gate (Porte de Saint Jacques) as you enter the walled Basque town of Saint Jean Pied de Port. It is here where many of the Camino routes coming from France converge and where you can join the famous French Way to continue on your way to Santiago de Compostela.

Trip highlights

  • Visit the relics of Mary Magdalene in Vézelay
  • Taste local delicacies, such as the famous 'Escargots'
  • Be enchanted by Medieval Limoges
  • Enjoy the peace as you walk the forests of Landes
