Vezelay

A Abadia de Vézelay ou Basílica de Santa Maria Madalena é um mosteiro Beneditino da cidade de Vézelay no departamento de Yonne construída em Arquitetura românica e danificada durante a Revolução Francesa. É Património Mundial da UNESCO desde 1979.
A Basílica foi fundada como um mosteiro da antiga vila romana de Vercellus (mais tarde chamada Vézelay). A vila passou pela regência da Dinastia carolíngia e transferida para o controle de Girart de Rossilhão. Os dois conventos foram salteados pelos mouros no século VIII e o outro foi incendiado pelos Normandos. No Século IX a Abadia foi reformada sob a orientação de Badilo, que se afiliou a Abadia de Cluny. Vézelay também foi parte dos Caminhos de Santiago.

La basilique Sainte-Marie-Madeleine de Vézelay est une ancienne abbatiale française établie à Vézelay, dans le département de l'Yonne en Bourgogne.

Sur la route qui mène à Vézelay, la croix Montjoie symbolise la joie du pèlerin apercevant pour la première fois la basilique.

En effet, c'est à pied qu'il faut rejoindre ce haut lieu de la chrétienté du Moyen Âge, lieu de pèlerinage important sur le chemin de Saint-Jacques-de-Compostelle.
Le tympan du narthex de la basilique est un des chefs-d'œuvre de la sculpture romane.

La basilique fait l’objet d’un classement au titre des monuments historiques par la liste de 18401. Elle est inscrite sur la liste du patrimoine mondial de l'UNESCO en 1979.

Vézelay Abbey (French: Abbaye Sainte-Marie-Madeleine de Vézelay) was a Benedictine and Cluniac monastery in Vézelay in the Yonne department in northern Burgundy, France. The Benedictine abbey church, now the Basilica of Sainte-Marie-Madeleine (Saint Mary Magdalene), with its complicated program of imagery in sculpted capitals and portals, is one of the outstanding masterpieces of Burgundian Romanesque art and architecture. Sacked by the Huguenots in 1569, the building suffered neglect in the 17th and the 18th centuries and some further damage during the period of the French Revolution.[1]

The church and hill at Vézelay were added to the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites in 1979.
