Domecy-sur-Cure

  • At 9 km from Vezelay

    Situated in the green pastures along the Cure, the village has preserved the chapel and the towers of an abbey founded in the XII century. On the other side of the bridge a path leads up to the monumental statue of Our Lady of Light, standing on a rock overlooking the village and the Cure. The statue was made by a local Avallonais called Jean Vigoureux.

    Away, isolated on a hill, stands the old fortress-castle of the XV century where four towers  hold guard over the land of  Burgundy and the Nivernais.
