    New bells

    VEZELAY

    Elsewhere on my travelpages you may have noticed my interest in campanology. I am a bell ringer in my own hometown Brielle.
    So imagine my delight when I found these brand new bells on show in St. Madeleine's church in Vezelay!
    They had just been blessed, these bells. Maybe next time I will hear them ring from the church tower.

    Acquired in 1675 by Marshall Vauban, thanks to a bonus from King Louis XIV, Vauban carried out restoration work and transformed the castle into a military garnison.

    Imagine walking this pilgrimage. I'd be so happy to see this sign, a point of rest. You're directed into the tourist office where they'll take care of a bed for you.
