An enlightened visit !!! We arrived early and while waiting for the scheduled group the receptionist introduced us to Vezelay's more global context (historical, geological etc ...). Very nice moment of welcome. Then the commentary during the slideshow and explanations around the model were enlightening. And with great precision on the part of the guide. She knew how to captivate us about the architectural symbolism and the techniques used by the medieval builders ... Brigitte, Lausanne
Transform a visit to the Basilica into an Experience On the main street which rises towards the Basilica, one must know how to stop. Take time to be welcomed as a friend at the Visitor's House. Let yourself be led by listening to bright revelations ... Damaris, Tannay
A great surprise A passionate and empassioned speaker transported us on a journey for over an hour. We went from shadow to light! We were able to admire the knowledge of these monks builders who knew how to harness it. A highly emotional moment to recommend to any visitor to Vezelay. Pierre, Saint Maur des Fosses
