We visited Rocamadour last week and parked up in a payant bay in the Hospitalet area. I vastly underestimated how long a visit to the site would take and was still in the Sancturies at the time our parking ticket expired with no hope of just getting back to the car to extend the expiry time.
Fortunately, when we got back to the car nothing had happened.
Can anyone please tell me what the parking rules are and the consequences of not having a valid ticket? I guess that this could happen at just about any tourist destination in France.
