Getting There — The best way to reach Rocamadour is by car. From Bordeaux, travel east along A89 autoroute to Brive-la-Gaillarde, then take the A20 to exit 54 toward Gramat. Then continue on D840 and take the D673 south to Rocamadour.

Rocamadour and neighboring Padirac share a train station, Gare de Rocamadour-Padirac, that isn’t really convenient to either—it’s 4km (2.5 miles) east of Rocamadour on N140. Trains arrive about five or six times a day from Brive in the north and Capdenac in the south; for transport from the station, your only option is to call a taxi (phone numbers posted at the station). For train information and schedules, visit www.oui.sncf or call tel. 36-35 (.40€/min.). 

Visitor Information — The town maintains two separate tourist offices, one in the village Hôtel de Ville, rue Roland-le-Preux (tel. 05-65-33-62-59), and another well-signposted branch office in l’Hospitalet, a small village in the heights that you will pass through on your way to Rocamadour (www.rocamadour.com; tel. 05-65-33-22-00).
