At the Stade de France, the Bataclan, in the cafes and restaurants of Paris... on Friday 13th November, terrorists killed and wounded many innocent people. And in doing so, they also aimed also to kill these places that we love, places which represent culture and a spirit of sharing.
We at WorldEventListings share the grief of the friends and families of the victims of the terrorist attacks of 13th November 2015. And we offer our unconditional support to all the cultural venues affected.
Our raison d'être has always been to share cultural information with as many people as possible. We will continue. We will win. Their failure is only a matter of time.

Description

From France and Navarre.

The Vézelay Route is the route favoured by pilgrims on their way from Belgium (Namur). All along the way, you can discover numerous religious sanctuaries such as Sainte-Madeleine in Vézelay or Saint-Martial in Limoges. This route will take around 75 days on foot (or 1 878 km), linking Vézelay with Santiago de Compostela.
There are two alternative itineraries on this route: you can go via Bourges or via Nevers.

Since 1998 the Routes to Santiago de Compostela, crisscrossing France and Spain, have featured on the Unesco World Heritage List. Since the Middle Ages Santiago de Compostela has been a pilgrimage destination for devotees from all over Europe. The Spanish church has preserved in its crypt the tomb of the apostle James. Since this era, Santiago de Compostela has been one of the major places of pilgrimage, on the same level as Rome and Jerusalem.
To reach Galicia, pilgrims had to cross France. Several different routes are possible.
