    • 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.

    It's something completely something else than a castle or a cave. Very nice! Price is also reasonable. Safety is good for small kids.

    Fascinating and well kept site. Loads of information and guides available if required. Shady car park, snack bar and toilets. Not to be missed, but there are several steep stairways and a lot of uneven ground so reasonable mobility needed.

    Guided tour was one of the best experiences of our Dordogne vacation! The guide was amazing and was able to describe what Saint-Christophe during the middle ages looked like in a lively but rigorous way! Now we know how a trogloditic medieval community lived! Guided tour is suitable for grown up children too. I just wish we could visit the bottom section of the cliff, populated during prehistory but closed off to the public..

    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!

    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.
