Camping holidays Rocamadour
Take a camping holiday near Rocamadour and discover this holy city, listed as one of the "Grand Site Midi-Pyrénées" tourist sites.
A major milestone on the road to Saint Jacques de Compostelle, Rocamadour is an important place of pilgrimage with many religious buildings. The 3rd largest pilgrimage site in the world after Jerusalem and Rome, the pilgrimage of Notre Dame de Rocamadour is a must-see and brings together thousands of pilgrims every year.
The medieval town perched on a 150 meter tall cliff overlooks the Alzou valley and will naturally invite you to meditation and a spiritual outlook.
Just like the pilgrims, climb the 216 steps that will lead you to the religious town where you can visit the Saint-Sauveur basilica and the Saint-Amadour crypt, both of them listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites. And the town also has many other chapels to offer: the Sainte-Anne, Saint-Blaise, Saint-Jean-Baptiste, Notre-Dame and Saint-Michel chapels.
While visiting Rocamadour, don't miss the great bird of prey show at Rocher des Aigles. Marvel at this fun and educational show in which vultures, condors, eagles, falcons, macaws, cockatoos and parrots fly over your heads for over an hour and a half. In addition to the site's beauty and the richness of its heritage, Rocamadour is also a village where life is good, offering all kinds of events and activities, which include the Durandal horse show.
The Regional Natural Park of Causses du Quercy, a true paradise for hikers, encircles the city. The Park offers many hiking and mountain bike trails, as well as 100% natural sporting activities: caving, climbing, canoeing, canyoning, kayaking, horseback riding,
