Flying over Rocamadour


A few days ago we made a forty-five minute trip over to the neighbouring department of the Lot to take some aerial shots of the village of Rocamadour. It’s an amazing sight from the air, built into the side of a deep gorge above the River Alzou, a tributary of the Dordogne. The buildings rise in stages up the side of the four hundred foot cliff, topped with a château built in the middle-ages. The village is steeped in history with stories of pilgrims, and apparently has a subterranean church built in 1166. Definitely worth a visit if you’re in the area.
