    • 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.

    A really amazing place to visit! Very well preserved and so cool to walk where thousands of people wave walked for thousands of years! Great little shop too with a cafe for some essentials.

    Just excellent! A place out of the ordinary, where you take a step back into the past. A definite must if you're in the region. Informative signs all along the visiting path explain the site and what you actually see. And the views from up the rock are simply breathtaking.

    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.
