The municipality of Rocamadour is a major tourist destination if you pass through the Haut-Quercy in the Dordogne valley. Located in the Lot department and bordering the Périgord Noir, the city is built on a cliff overlooking the Alzou valley, offering an exceptional panorama that has impressed many visitors and tourists, the city welcoming on average no less than 1.5 million tourists a year !
Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the city indeed possesses a particular charm, perhaps due to its heritage as a former pilgrimage destination. The city is indeed monumental, with its immense 216-steps stairs, which lead to the esplanade of sanctuaries and its chapels, basilica and crypt.
The palace of the Bishops of Tulle dominates the complex, culminating in a pilgrim path leading to the Rocamadour Castle and the Jerusalem Cross, where a belvedere offers visitors a breathtaking view of the city and the landscapes of the Alzou.
