Rocamadour

... mon amour, as part of the lyrics of an old typical French 'chanson'

Historic shrine perched on a limestone cliff, Rocamadour tells a story of religious belief and human endeavour. Looking out over the gorge of the River Alzou, this city devoted to the Virgin Mary has remained for over nine hundred years a symbol of faith and hope

Definitely worth a visit if you are in the neighbourhood

    Haven't been to Rocamadour for over 20 years - I can remember having to climb up lots of steps to visit things - I don't remember there being a lift back then! Mike
