The Way of St. James – GR®654

From north of the Yonne to south of the Nièvre

From Quincerot to La Charité-sur-Loire and Nevers, this route crosses the Yonne vineyards in this, the most beautiful period of the year to admire the vines. When you pass through Vézelay, don't miss the famous basilica before stopping off to visit and taste the production, or even have lunch, at the Domaine de La Croix Montjoie. On the southern section of the route, you'll have some superb views of the Loire from the vineyard and a new religious monument: the Notre-Dame de La Charité-sur-Loire Priory.
