Calvary

Opening hours: Du 01/01 au 31/12

Burzet's calvary is part of the unique 32 stations in Europe from the 18th century. Each Holy Friday, more than 60 "burzetins" (people from burzet) offer a disguised reconstitution of the Christ Passion along the cross walk.

Each year, every holy friday, hundred of pilgrims follow the procession along the wordly known cross walk. The calvary path starts from the church of Burzet (first station) then goes down the hill along the old "roman route" built during medieval age to link the south of Ardeche to the Puy en Velay.
