Rocamadour is a true "experience" and a must see place. Well worth walking from the Chateau down the "way of the cross" to the beautiful church and the amazing spiritual chapel ( with the black madonna ) and down the 216 steps to the old...More

This is an unbelievably spectacular place on three levels, the Chateau at the top, the Cite Religieuse perched on the cliff, and the beautiful village at the foot. To get between the levels you can climb steps or take a lift (elevator) at a reasonable...More

Went there on Easter Monday, it was busy. However, it was great to wander around town. The place is spiritual but not only for religious people.

Amazing place. First impression is when you are driving towards Rocamadour and you have the impression that something goes wrong because you don't see any high mountain where the village is placed. Finally you see it from the other side of a small valley and...More

On the up side you have beautiful views. The buildings are well preserved and they are absolutely astounding when you consider when they were built. There is an almost unbelievable religious shrine about 1/2 up the hillside that is carved into the mountainside. If you're...More
