Vézelay - Yonne - Bourgogne - France

IMGF 8724

La ville est située sur une haute colline. Celle-ci a valu à Vézelay en 1793 l’appellation de Vézelay-la-Montagne. La raison en est simple : seul le côté ouest est facilement accessible, les versants sud, nord et est étant plus abrupts. La rue principale suit la ligne de crête de cette colline et permet de rejoindre l’église abbatiale située sur le point culminant. Vézelay est proche de la Cure, sur sa rive gauche.

Vézelay est distante de 15 km d’Avallon et de 45 km d’Auxerre.

The city is situated on a high hill. This one was worth to Vézelay in 1793 the naming of Vézelay-la-Montagne. The reason is simple there: only the western side is easily accessible(approachable), the south, north hillsides and is being abrupter(steeper). The main street follows the ridge line of this hill and allows to join the abbey church situated on the peak. Vézelay is close to the Cure, on his(her) left bank.

Vézelay is distant from 15 km of Avallon and from 45 km of Auxerre.
