The road to Rocamadour follows twisting valleys and streams and in several places there are clear signs of old and more modern cliff and cave dwellings. Doors and windows which penetrate the rock face tell us that the Cathars once depended on these caves for...More

The basilica was lovely. We approached from above, having walked from P2 at the top. I would recommend arriving before 10. It was fairly quiet when we arrived - but became busy very quickly. There is 11 am mass. The black madonna is located in...More

A real eye opener, after a few hours wandering around the town, the chapels, black Madonna, I found it all very interesting, well worth the climb and a must if in the area

It is well worth the walk to the Chapel to visit. The architecture is beautiful and just amazing how it is built into the rock wall. We were treated to the chiming of bells while we were there and made the visit even more special.

The Basilica is gorgeous. First, it is a wonder because the structure is built in the rock face. It is an experience worth the drive and walk to visit.

We went here to see the Black Madonna and Christ Child of Rocamadour which were very impressive and were lucky enough to visit during one of their regular services - it was the highlight of our trip.

The Basilique is a must see, in fact, take your time to see the chapels and just be there for a while. Walk up to the castle, this is an interesting short walk. You will see 14 Stations of the Cross, also chapels in the...More

The church is architecturally stunning since it is built into a rock face. It also has a black Madonna as well as several other interesting areas. The views are excellent.

Being built into the rock face makes for interesting architecture. The church compound is made up of the basilica and a number of chapels one of which houses the black madonna revered by pilgrims to the area. That it is all perched above the very...More
