Trail Fontenay - Vézelay

  • A line between Fontenay and Vézeay

    A circuit connects the two Burgundian sites listed as World Heritage by UNESCO.

  • Whether you take the start from the Basilica of Vezelay or from the Cistercian Abbey of Fontenay, this route of about 84 km has everything to seduce you. Via small paths without any particular difficulty, the interest of course lies in the discovery of rich heritage elements and beautiful views : the landscapes of Terre-Paline with the Morvan in the background or the views of Vézelay before reaching Asquins.

  • Initiated in Auxois five years ago with the markup of a first segment between Fontenay and Toutry, the project was continued by Pays Avallonnais from Guillon to Vézelay with the support of the Association Terre de Légendes.
    This new offering constitutes a real tourist product that is primarily for groups of hikers looking for a course that integrates nature and architecture. Passable on foot, by bike or on horseback, the highlight of this route is served by its stations Montbard TGV, Avallon and Vézelay-Sermizelles.
