... stopped at the local church, which was Romanesque and had some beautiful column capitals. Sadly, the church was desperately in need of repair, and had many worrying cracks in the walls and ceilings. As we left the town, we saw that we had been there for over an hour. This is not please the architect who felt like we wasted too much time. I, however, do not have some phantom schedule for hiking. Stopping along the way and getting to see the sites is ...

... a thick accent. He immediately said that English would be
better for him, and we agreed that worked for us as well. As soon as he started
speaking English, I knew that he was an American. I told him I was from the US,

... I went straight to the cathedral.

Now, in my personal opinion, the inside of the cathedral does not come close to rivaling the cathedral of Bourges, but the fašade is amazing. Construction began in the 13th century and continued through the 19th c., but the fašade, is Gothic in all its glory. The sheer number of gargoyles gave me the chills in the best way possible. Inside, most of the remaining works are 19th century, but under the organ there ...

... as the worship of Maria. There are fortified houses, located on the valley side with a amazing cathedral built against the cliff face. In the 16th century the religious wars destroyed much of Rocamadour and the 19th century saw it restored to what it is today. It is a steep climb down from the Chateau to the Sanctuaries and the streets are now lined with souvenir shops etc. Was getting late so took the overpriced lift ...
