In this small medieval village in the heart of the Regional Nature Park des Causses du Quercy, the buildings are mixed with the yellowish rocks of the cliff that rises over the valley of the river Alzou. Rocamadour, in the interior of French southwest, was from the 12th to the 14th century an important sanctuary, located on the route of the Way of Santiago de Compostela. Today, the black virgin of Notre-Dame-de-Rocamadour attracts religious tourists or not to this charming historical place.

Passing the stairs and small narrow streets, you come to Saint-Sauveur Church and Saint-Amadour Crypt, both inscribed on UNESCO's World Heritage list. The houses by the river or the castle of the XIV century, which stands at the highest point of the city, form beautiful landscapes, an ideal retreat for those seeking tranquility, contact with nature and mysticism. In addition to walks through the natural reserve full of caves, Rocamadour offers delicious gastronomic tours. The city gives name to the small cheese made from goat's milk, produced in a traditional way in the place.
