I envy you your week at Vézelay; may it be poignant and splendid....Godspeed.
Vézelay Abbey and Basilica, is such a grand monument of faith and architecture in the French countryside. In this photo I am entering the light of the ambulatory silently thankful to be there once again after walking from home in December 2008.
Although I intended to continue on towards Santiago my knees did not; the two week walk is described in this blog
For the last 60 years or so I have loved this interior. Romanesque, Gothic, and 19th century intervention form timeless beauty; eternal peace is combined with man-made perfection. ...Might this magnificent site endure for another thousand years.
