It is well worth the walk to the Chapel to visit. The architecture is beautiful and just amazing how it is built into the rock wall. We were treated to the chiming of bells while we were there and made the visit even more special.

The Basilica is gorgeous. First, it is a wonder because the structure is built in the rock face. It is an experience worth the drive and walk to visit.

We went here to see the Black Madonna and Christ Child of Rocamadour which were very impressive and were lucky enough to visit during one of their regular services - it was the highlight of our trip.

The Basilica was a very cool stop, we especially appreciated the rock walls that the sanctuary was built into. It is an amazing piece of architecture. It is definitely worth the visit.

A truly lovely place, that even though visited by many tourists as well as pilgrims, still has an air of holiness. Partially built into the cliff, this is a place of austere beauty, but with the most glorious stained glass windows.
