This walk of 130 kilometres (81 miles) starts at Martel in the Midi-Pyrénées, heads north into the Limousin region and circles around through Beaulieu-sur-Dordogne before heading south once more into the Midi-Pyrénées and finishing in Rocamadour. On the way, it passes through six of the ‘most beautiful villages’ in France – Turenne, Collonges-la-Rouge, Curemonte, Autoire, Loubressac and Carennac. In addition to these picturesque villages, there are fresh food markets at Martel, Curemonte, Beaulieu-sur-Dordogne, Bretenoux or Carennac to enjoy, two chateaux (and the remains of a third) to wander through and the underground lakes and caves of Gouffre de Padirac to explore. In Rocamadour, you will stand in the same spot as the English King Henri II and Sir Thomas Beckett to admire the statue of the Black Madonna – which legend says was brought here in the first century A.D. by Zaccheus, a servant of Mary.
