Abbaye Sainte Foy de Conques, Aveyron, France. The main draw for medieval pilgrims at Conques were the remains of St. Foy, a martyred young woman from the fourth century. The relics of St. Foy arrived in Conques through theft in 866. A monk from Conques posed as a loyal monk in Agen for nearly a decade in order to get close enough to the relics to steal them.
