On the left you will find the Vézelay Route (red dotted line) and the facilities along that route (purple circles). By zooming in on the map you will find accommodation (maroon and red symbols), train stations (green) and other facilities (blue).
The blue symbols with an ‘i’ indicate: the Tourist Offices, the Pilgrim Offices and the monuments which in 1998, within the framework of the ‘Routes of Santiago de Compostela in France', have been designated as World Heritage (UNESCO).
The maroon symbols refer to pilgrim hostels (by Confraternities of Saint James, municipalities, religious institutions and private persons) and home hospitality.
The red symbols refer to general accommodation (B&B, hotels, campsites, etc.).
You will find more information about, for example, an accommodation if you click on the corresponding symbol. Please report any errors via the 'feedback' option.
