Voie de Rocamadour/GR 652: Église Notre-Dame de Moirax.

Moirax since it's foundation in the eleventh century has been a halt along the way for pilgrims. It is one day's walk from Agen and on the way to La Romieu (Voie de Rocamadour/GR 652). Église Notre-Dame de Moirax is a fine example of romanesque architecture and has a noteworthy collection of wooden panels carved in rounds, misericordias and stalls by Jean Tournière (1699).

Illustrated with photos by Lovingkindness (May, 2021), this resource contains excerpts from historical writings and examples of early sketches, a lithograph and vintage post cards.
