    • In one of the most beautiful landscapes of the Périgord, halfway between les Eyzies and Montignac, the enormous cliff of the "Roque Saint-Christophe" rises to a peak above the Vézère River.

      This limestone wall, one kilometer long and eighty meters high, has been endlessly eroded by the river and frost until it became carved of rock shelters and long and aerial terraces impressionally overhead.

      These natural cavities were occupied by cave dwellers approximately 55000 years ago. Later, during the Middle Ages and up until the Renaissance Period, they gradually changed to become a fortress and protected town.

    We went with our two young children aged 8 and 2. There was lots to see and very interesting. There were boards explaining the different features in English too.

  • "Interesting rock cave system in the Perigord"

    5 / 5 Reviews posted by Simon-from-Adelaide (Mount Barker, Australia) on 02/08/2019

    Interesting cave system in the Perigord. Good parking and entry price is reasonable. Signs are all in French but can get an audioguide in English. Well worth a visit - allow about an hour.
