(300+ reviews on the web)
Historic Site Tourist Spot
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.
