Province : Black Périgord

  • English
    • At the crossroads between Le Bugue and Montignac, Périgueux and Sarlat, the village of Eyzies-de-Tayac-Sireuil is the capital of prehistory, known worldwide.

      Nestled in a frame of cliffs which testify to millennia of human occupation, this village is an obligatory stop on the edge of the Vézère.

      Closely "watched" by the famous yellow stone statue representing the Neanderthal, the site was the shelter of our distant ancestors and the place of habitation of men from prehistoric times. The discovery of these shelters from the 19th century, their exploration and the study of their deposits made this village the center of the study of prehistory.

      Indeed, in the Paleolithic, the Vézère offered men a wealth of cavities that they frequented. They left traces there, testifying over the centuries to the different species and cultures that occupied them. The climate and its evolution have often forged its changes, so that for fauna, mammoths and reindeer have been replaced today by wild boars and deer. Man has gradually settled down after clearing the forest, as the climate warms.

      Visit, of course, the National Museum of Prehistory, the Font de Gaume Cave, the Vault shelter...
