*** NEW SERIES ***

I invite you to join me in another series. This time we are investigating a small picturesque village, Rocamadour, buried deep in the French country-side of Quercy. If you'd like to start at the beginning of the series CLICK HERE.

Next episode ...............................................

Full of wonderment and awe, we pass through the arched passageway into the inner Sanctuary of the Religious City. The atmosphere is hushed and reverent; expectation palpable.

We are surrounded by the grandeur of the soaring rock face and protected by the chateau fortress above. We are surrounded by man-made wonders, the Basilica and seven chapels. . It is here, where many miracles have occurred. It is here, that is the the place of legend.

Tomorrow ... 'The Black Virgin' ...
