Visit with family
One of the monuments that I really wanted to visit in Rocamadour was the Sword of Roland because I was especially attracted by the stories and legends of the sword. What I couldn't find in a guide book was its location, so I had to look on the internet. It's just above the entrance of the church of Rodamadour Notredame . Legend says Roland, not wanting his enemies of battle to take the sword, tried to part with it, but couldn't, so he threw it and it landed in a stone. The sword in the rock is not the real sword, but a replica of the original, which seems to be doomed to stay in the stone for centuries.
