Astonishing site. We came down from the chateau to the village as it was easier with 2 toddlers tagged alone. Beautiful structures built around the protruding rock. Astonishing views everywhere.

Rocamadour is perched on the side of a limestone cliff and towers majestically over the Alzou canyon. What a wild and unspoiled environment! We hiked up many flights of stairs to the church of the black virgin, and enjoyed the wonderful views

You can not describe the awe of this site. To imagine anyone designing this site is beyond possible! But they did it. The dizzying heights are beyond descriptions they carved beautiful chapels and staircases straight into the stone canyons suspended over an incredible deep gorge....More

What a place to explore! We loved it. The tacky tourist shops in the street below are soon forgotten when you visit the church perched on the rocks. There are many chapels to explore, and there is a serenity that washes over you. The black...More

Already overcrowded before noon, hardly any parking space. The second most visited religious place in France. Stunning location but the city is turned into a tourist trap.
