The history of the Rocamadour cheese goes back to the introduction of goats in the region during the Arab invasion in the Middle Ages.
This goat cheese is made in the Aquitaine region and more particularly in Quercy. In his book "Le Vieux Quercy," the diocesan archivist of the Ministry of Education wrote in 1929 that "Only Rocamadour of the Causse area has a delicious cheese that is unknown in other regions.
The region, with its world famous religious site (Cité de Rocamadour) located on the road to Saint Jacques de Compostela, has always attracted a large number of pilgrims who have contributed to the notoriety of the small cheese.
