Roc de Cazelle, Les Eyzies-de-Tayac-Sireuil

Roc de Cazelle has been inhabited from the days of cave dwellers, through the Middle Ages and into the 20th century. The site's location along cliffs above the river provided protection and a steady water supply. Today visitors can tour the caves and cliff dwellings, which have been reconstructed to show what life was like during different historical periods. Children and adults appreciate the engaging exhibits that show early hunter-gatherers cooking, medieval knights and their armor, and a modern couple home-making there in the 1960s. Human figures, animals, period furniture, and utensils add to the displays.

  • This is an awesome place to visit.
  • Magnificent reconstruction. Walk during which everyone: the younger who likes to find the hidden animals around us the eldest who discovers the lifestyle of our ancestors. And as a bonus, making tools, fire demonstration and test natural paintings. Great afternoon!
