    Conques is a village in the Aveyron département of southern France. It is classified as one of the Most Beautiful Villages of France. The Sainte-Foy Abbey-Church in Conques was and is still a popular stop for pilgrims on their way to Santiago de Compostela in Spain. The village has guarded its fabulous collection of gold treasures for 12 centuries, amongst which the jewel in the crown is the reliquary statue of Sainte-Foy, quite simply a masterpiece, a unique example of medieval art in the western world.
