Saint-Moré

  • At 16 Km from Vezelay

    In this village, the Gallo-Roman period that left the most interesting remains; those of a fortified observation post built on the Hill to protect the via Agrippa leading from Lyon to Boulogne sur Mer. The archaeological site of Cora shows  an  impressive strong wall of nearly 3m wide. Flanked by round towers and preceded by a wide ditch, it defends the only access to the entrenched camp.

    At the entrance of the village, stands a castle of the XV century surrounded by a moat and, on the place of the martyrdom of Saint Moré, a "miraculous” fountain, where people came in droves to quench their thirst.

    Many salamanders come here to breed in autumn.
