La Porte du Figuier considered one of the gateways to the tourist town of Rocamadour. For many tourists, will in most cases make their first stop at Rocamadour as there is a car parking and also is the only places where you can leave the car to go into the village.
The door forms part of the surrounding wall that has been around the city for centuries. It is the only gate of the town, as inside, you'll find other doors like the Salmon Port, Port Hugon or Cabiliert Gate and Tower. It is certainly one of the great attractions of this gated city is the terrain, it is on the Alzou River and appears to be in perfect harmony with the mountain made out of limestone rock on which the historic part of Rocamadour sits.
