In 1162, an ancient tomb containing an unidentified body was found at Rocamadour, France. Shortly thereafter, the legend of St. Amadour developed. He had been a servant of Jesus' mother and later married St. Veronica whose claim to fame was to wipe Jesus' brow during his march to the crucifixion. Or maybe St. Amadour was born in 388 A.D. and witnessed the martyrdom of St. Paul. Or maybe he is a wholly imaginary person.

What is fact is that those bones belonged to someone, and buildings and chapels soon rose from the cliffs, making Rocamadour a cool place to visit today.
