Rocamadour, a medieval city close to the gulf of Padirac and the Dordogne valley, sits in the heart of the Causses de Quercy natural regional park


Built in a series of tiers in the cliffside, this village is sometime nicknamed “la cité du vertige” or “vertigo city”, because it looks down from a height of 120 metres over the Alzou canyon. This medieval city is not only famous for its stunning views, but is also well known as a pilgrimage destination.


Rocamadour already had a name as a famous pilgrimage destination in the Middle Ages, and it has remained an icon of faith and hope throughout the centuries.


The village of today still has the appearance of a medieval township with its one street. The seven churches and chapels, including the chapel of Notre-Dame, are reached by climbing a set of steps or taking a lift.


With over 1.5 million visitors a year, Rocamadour is one of France’s most visited tourist attractions. In 2016, the French voted this medieval township their third favourite village.
