This village has been a pilgrimage site for centuries, drawing visitors with its historical monuments and the revered sanctuary of the Blessed Virgin Mary. From kings and bishops to nobles and pilgrims from around the world, Rocamadour has left an indelible impression on all who visit.

Explore the UNESCO World Heritage Site

Rocamadour is undeniably one of the most picturesque villages in the region, earning its classification as a UNESCO World Heritage site due to its location along the renowned St. James Way pilgrimage route. The village's main attraction lies in its sanctuaries, particularly the Notre Dame Chapel, which houses a revered statue of the Black Virgin.

During your visit, you can choose to explore the village on foot, although it should be noted that the terrain can be challenging for those with mobility issues.
