    • LA ROQUE SAINT-CHRISTOPHE Troglodyte fort and city, immense cliff located between the EYZIES and MONTIGNAC-LASCAUX occupied from Prehistory to the Renaissance, there you will discover the mode of habitat of our ancestors.

      Remarkable for its powerful forms, its number of habitats and its age of occupation by man, this site constitutes a setting of rare and wild beauty. This veritable wall of limestone one kilometer long and eighty meters high, constantly undermined by the river and the frost, has been dug out of a hundred rock shelters and long aerial terraces. These natural cavities were occupied by man from prehistoric times, then modified in the Middle Ages, to become a troglodyte fort and city until the early Renaissance.

      Visiting the site allows you to understand the layout of the cave dwellings.

      There you will discover the imprint left by our ancestors on the rock as well as a conservatory of civil engineering machines which has been reconstructed in homage to the great medieval builders.

      Prices:
      • Adult: 10€
      • Student: 7€
      • Child 5-13 years old: 5€

    Overall good value for money but the 2 guides giving explainations only did it in French. The main problem was wearing a mask climbing up steps in the heat. The sign in 2 languages was clear. Masks must be worn even though you are outside. I can only assume the French cannot read and / or understand their own language. The same applied for dogs on a lead, it was just simply ignored.

    5 / 5 Reviews posted by Kareelas (Rennes, France) on 17/07/2021

    A must-see in Dordogne! Breathtaking views, fascinating history and very easy to access. There is even a well priced and great restaurant at the foot of the rock formation!

  • "Good insights"

    3 / 5 Reviews posted by Wilbert J (Erp, The Netherlands) on 11/08/2020

    Nice site to visit to get a feel for the regional history and to see how things were done in the old times. Entrance fee is a bit steep for what's offered though. Good to spend about 1.5 to 2 hours.

    Very nice site to be visited to understand more about the region. The view is great and it's a nice walk to go through the site. Wear comfortable shoes as it is difficult to walk.
