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

4.2
#4 of 15 in Things to do in 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.

    Disappointing, a few things to do with little information, but frankly I do not recommend.

    A big difference between the flyer and the reality: it is in fact a simple stroll in nature looking for some poorly done prehistoric scenes (a bad point for the scene of childbirth which denotes in this course intended primarily for families with young children). The visit ends with a mini farm lacking clearly maintenance. Some animals do not seem at their best: little space for sheep, pigs, a poor half-plucked Turkey and two unfortunate rabbits imprisoned in a rabbit Hutch. A quick question: at the end of the course, done this straight reindeer out of the sleigh of Santa Claus?

    Great release... Very good reconstructions for small enchanted by the animals to find! We landed there not random (too much tail at Lascaux) and our cherubs have been happier! Louis, 4 years and a half, already wants to go back! To recommend!

    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!

    Great fun walking around along and set up by cave houses. The entire path is decorated with appropriate images.

    Park, which traces the history of houses troglodytes, from prehistory to the year 60. Nice animations. Break freshness. Children and adults find their account.
