Since its foundation, the abbey-church in Conques has always welcomed pilgrims from across Christian Europe who come to venerate the relics of Sainte Foy. The Book of Miracles bears witness to this popular fervour.

Alongside traditional pilgrims, more and more modern day walkers take to this cultural itinerary for a variety of reasons. Conques offers a privileged occasion for human encounters and discovery of this exceptional artistic and architectural heritage.

Discover the stained glass windows by Pierre Soulages. Come in, raise your head and watch the light's action on the stained glass. Transcendental!

Two rooms of Treasure are open to visitors, presenting the famous reliquary statue of Sainte Foy, a statue in gold encrusted with gems offered by pilgrims, but also a large number of pieces by mediaeval goldsmiths, tapestries and the capitals of the old cloister.

From the centre of Conques, take rue Charlemagne on the GR65, go through ported du Barry and descend. At the bottom, you arrive at the magnificent “Roman” bridge.
