Must see · Landmark · Tourist Spot
Roque Saint-Christophe Fort et Cite Troglodytiques, a 1 k (.5 mi) long and 80 m (87 yd) high limestone cliff in Dordogne, has housed settlements since 55,000 BCE. Five layers of terraces and caves have been naturally carved into the cliff by frost and the Vezere river below. You can scale the cliffs and roam among these settlements, which date from the days of cavemen up through the Renaissance. Explore on your own, or ask for a naturalist to guide you.

  • 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.  more »
  • 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.  more »
