  • A round walk which, in part, follows the former pilgrim way towards Rocamadour and goes through the village of Gluges with its surprising Romanesque chapel sheltering under the cliff. Hawthorn, ash, service trees, field or Montpellier maple, sorb trees, pistachio trees, dogwood and many other species line the path, whilst in spring ground-growing orchids flourish in the dry pastures. This path is also that of medicinal plants (simples) which were once used to make infusions, elixirs or unguents. In the Middle Ages, this path would surely have been used by the nuns of the Saint-Marc Hospital in Martel who used to treat and care for Rocamadour pilgrims..
