Rocamadour

Having seen the photographs, we are wanting to do a day trip here in September. I am having difficulty getting my head round the logistics of this and the best way to tackle it. I have bad knees and know that a lot of steps will play havoc with them. I'd be grateful for any help or advice.

How busy is it likely to be mid September - horrendous or manageable?

Where is the best place to park? How busy do the car parks get and are we likely to regret trying to drive to the top car park by the Château?

If we use the bottom car park, how long will it take us to walk to the town? Is it a long climb up? Is it worth catching the tourist train?

I have seen references to lifts. Where are they and are they clearly signed? How frequent are they and are there likely to be long queues?

Are the religious sites open to tourists?

Any other tops or advice gratefully received.
