I am not Catholic, so this church has no personal meaning. I've seen more impressive medieval churches. The folklore and legacy of the pilgrimages is what made this site a must see for me. The setting in the Rock is also a first for me....More

My 4th time, we drove from Brantôme and the 2 hour each way drive is worth it. In May it was less busy and we managed to walk without feeling compressed! The little train journey from the car park is a nice bit of fun!...More

We were lucky to be in Rocamadour off the season and yet the place was full with visitors. We parked at the top and walked down and on the way back used the lift. It is a remarkable city and sort of a "must visit"...More
