    Voie de Vézelay (St. James' Way) or Via Lemovicensis

    Beautiful landscapes and noble stones.

    Vézelay was the meeting point for pilgrims from Belgium, the Ardennes, Lorraine and Champagne on St. James' Way. The Vézelay Route, or Via Lemovicensis, crosses the Libourne region and continues through Entre-Deux-Mers and the Gascony Landes before reaching the majestic forest.
    From Périgueux to Saint-Jean-Pied de Port, the itinerary presented certain difficulties for pilgrims in the Middle Ages because of swamps and untamed rivers.
    Today, the Vézelay Route is easier and features masterpieces of art and architecture along the way.
