Basilique de VézelayThe holy hill of Vézelay, surmounted by the Basilica of St. Mary Magdalene, is a prominent French sacred art site.

This church, built between the 9th and 12th century to house the relics of St. Mary Magdalene is one of the main points of departure of the Santiago Camino pilgrimage.

St. Bernard preached the Second Crusade in Vezelay in 1146.

Vézelay and Fontenay have been the first two sites in Burgundy listed as World Heritage by UNESCO. They have been joined by the Climats of Burgundy in 2015.
