Rocamadour Things to Do: 27 reviews and 78 photos

by black_mimi99

A cluster of chapels and churches high on a rocky plateau. And to going up I need to climb a stairway of 216 weathered steps. Even today, devout pilgrims make the climb on their knees in penance. Along the way are 14 Stations of the Cross culminating in the Cross of Jerusalem at the top. There is also an elevator from the lower town (Basse Ville).

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
