After the drama of the Pyrenees the Midi Pyrenees of southern France more rolling hills. With:
Tree lined canals
With elegant locks
And deep gorges formed by the Alzou river
And as if hanging from the face of the mighty gorges,
The village of Rocamadour
Rocamadour has its origins in the 4th century, and developed through the medieval times. It is a place of miracles, shrine of the Black Madonna and survived the Cathar Wars which may be a miracle in itself.
The Midi Pyrenees opened the door to northern France, the beautiful Loire Valley, and the bountiful fields running up to the Belgian border.
Rocamadour, has an amazing goat cheese, some say the best goat cheeze
