Itinerary

Today the Quercy region is on your program. First, depart for the pilgrimage and fortress village of Rocamadour that has attracted visitors for its setting in a gorge above a tributary of the River Dordogne. The village is renowned for its historical monuments and its sanctuary of the Blessed Virgin Mary, which for centuries has brought pilgrims from every country, among them kings, bishops, and nobles.

Follow your guide and visit the renowned Notre Dame Chapel, part of an extraordinary 13th-century chapel complex perched on a cliff and one of the most dramatic pilgrimage sites in Europe.

After some free time for personal discovery we depart for the wonderful village of Saint-Cirq-Lapopie, known to be the most beautiful of all the beautiful villages of France.

Its position, originally selected for defense, perched on a steep cliff 100 m above the river Lot has helped make the town one of the most well preserved in the area, almost as if it was an open air museum. After it was “discovered” by the Post-Impressionist Henri Martin, it became popular with other artists and the home of the writer André Breton.

Enjoy some free time in this wonderful village. Return to Sarlat.
