In the Lot, there's Quercy, and in Quercy, there's Rocamadour. And the hermit Amador would be astonished if he really did exist and came back from the mists of time to discover the 150 metre high cliff where he isolated himself to pray at the beginning of the Christian era. Rocamadour, on the pilgrimage route to Compostela, is one of the best-known pilgrimage sites in France and a magnificent place to visit.
