Becoming a guardian

cles noir

Through history, the Sanctuary of Rocamadour has benefited from the generosity of pilgrims and the thousands of visitors coming every year.

Today, the castle is closed to the public. We need your help to restore it and to be able to fulfill the opening project.

Your donation supports the urgent work needed to allow this historical site to survive.
