*** 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 ...............................................

The castle or fortress at the top of the Rocamadour cliff and its walls date from the late 13th and early 14th century. It protects the religious city below. Château de Rocamadour has seen wars of religion and the revolution that saw the plundering of the religious city and its the sanctuaries.

During the 19th century there was much work completed to restore the city to its former splendour. The Château de Rocamadour is built in the neo-Gothic style.

The obvious symbols of the Knights of Jerusalem lie in the grounds, mysteries and questions remain. How could so little of their presence be recorded? How could such a prominence and important monument remain so cloaked in mystery?
