Rocamadour, France

First full day in Dordogne. What a beautiful region of France. Region of the Fois gras de Canard, truffles, walnut oil, and so many more things.

We went to the town of Rocamadour today.  What a beautiful town.

Rocamadour is a very interesting town that is situated in a gorge above a tributary of the Dordogne River. It is very well known for its historical monuments and its sanctuary of the Virgin Mary. The town has for centuries attracted many pilgrims from every country, among them kings, bishops, and nobles.

We went all the way to the top of the town where we did the Chemin de Croix “Way of the cross”.

What a beautiful place. It was good to be able to walk around with my camera wherever I wanted!
