      This morning after breakfast and a chat to Gladys (our host), we set out for two gorgeous rural towns. The first one was Rocamadour. It's a town built on a cliff. Long and winding roads eventually got us to the top of the mountain and then we had to take an 'ascensur' or lift down to the historical town which has been built into the side of the mountain. Many pretty buildings and the compulsory touristy shops were there along with gorgeous views. We saw the castle, the church, and lots of very impressive cyclists, and as the day continued it changed from a foggy start to warm and sunny! I also liked seeing the Stations of the Cross as we went down and up the hill - a very Christian town clearly! Apparently, in the 12th Century, Henry II's son sacked this town so they built defenses so that they got their town back safely. Brave people with amazing engineering skills.Read more
