My favorite place in the world is on a small tributary of the river Dordogne near the town of Lacave, about ten miles from the great pilgrimage site of Rocamadour. It is the hotel Le Pont de l’Ouysse, which I have been visiting since 1986. It is my omphalos, the navel of my world, where everything comes into balance and harmony. Near this wonderful rustic hotel is the commercial town of Souillac, unexceptional except for a stunning abbey church, Sainte Marie-de-Souillac. This podcast explores the church itself, but concentrates mostly on the unrivaled sculpture inside, including the mysterious trumeau.
Here are some links to articles we have written about the the Église Sainte Marie de Souillac:
