Vezelay Sainte Madeleine

Vezelay Sainte Madeleine is a former Cluniac abbey in Burgundy, France. After Pope Pascall II declared that bones buried in the church were genuine relics of Mary Magdelen, the church became a destination for pilgrims.  It is a well known example of the Romanesque style of architecture.
