Welcome to Rocamadour


A hugely venerated pilgrimage place through the ages, on holy days as many as 30,000 people would stream into the valley to seek favours from the miraculous statue of the Virgin housed within. Henry Plantagenet (1133–89), King of England and Count of Anjou, was miraculously cured here. Always an important financial and symbolic spot, Rocamadour suffered during the Wars of Religion, when everything was razed. Fortunately, the icon and one bell survived, and they remain today in the rebuilt sanctuaries, which are still an active pilgrimage point.
