      MONTIGNAC, LIGHTHOUS STATION OF PÉRIGORD NOIR :

      Montignac is located in Dordogne, in the heart of Périgord Noir. The city is nestled upstream of the Vézère valley, so aptly named "Vallée de l'Homme". It is nestled at the foot of the Lascaux hill where LASCAUX - International Center for Parietal Art opened on December 15, 2016. Montignac is also halfway between Sarlat - the Dordogne valley and the “Capital of Prehistory”, Les Eyzies-de-Tayac. It is the golden triangle of the Périgord Noir. Remember that the Vézère valley is 400,000 years of human occupation, 15 sites registered on the prestigious UNESCO World Heritage list . Many tourist sites with various themes are open to visitors: crystallization caves, deposits, troglodyte sites, shelters, decorated caves, theme parks, museums, castles, fortresses, gardens.

      A LITTLE HISTORY :

      Montignac has been occupied since the Paleolithic. Mother Prehistory has left us another legacy of the LASCAUX cave and Le Regourdou . Over the centuries, the city has grown on both sides of the Vézère river. The feudal castle, former haunt of the Counts of Périgord, dominates a maze of small medieval streets where we discover beautiful residences of the XIV, XV and XVIth centuries, houses on stilts and half-timbered, laundries and fountains. Montignac, was also the welcoming land of the writer Eugène Le Roy. In summer, night tours of Montignac and the villages of the valley are organized. (by reservation).
