A photograph of a small old shrine along the way of the pilgrimage to the holy town of Rocamadour, the most popular and famous tourist destination in France. Pilgrims of the Roman Catholic faith travel from all over Europe to worship at the sacred site of Cathedral de Notre Dame de Rocamadour. Rocamadour has attracted visitors for its dramatic and magnificent setting in a deep vertical gorge above a tributary of the beautiful River Dordogne, and especially for its historical monuments and its ancient sanctuary of the Blessed Virgin Mary, which for centuries has attracted pilgrims from every country, among them kings, bishops, and nobles. The town below the complex of monastic buildings and pilgrimage roman catholic churches, traditionally dependent on the pilgrimage site and now on the tourist trade, lies near the river on the lowest slopes; it gives its name to Rocamadour, a small goats milk cheese that was awarded AOC status in 1996.
