    • 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.

    5 / 5 Reviews posted by Helen L on 13/10/2019

    A fascinating place. Well worth a visit. Lots of steps and a bit uneven so be careful if you are a little unsteady.
