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

(4.1/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
Roc de Cazelle has been inhabited from the days of cave dwellers, through the Middle Ages and into the 20th century.

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.

  • The first part young children spend a little fast, many panels to read. The second part with the reconstitution of a place where a family lived in isolation at the beginning of the century, interests them, a few surprises. on the other hand, the rate should be lower, when the workshops are not open, too bad. I recommend to the summer season, but not outside.

  • Not to be missed if you have kids, they'll love! They will be able to discover such that this place was inhabited by ancestors of prehistory, then converted into a castle in the middle age and housing until 1960. All times are presented by scenes of daily life. Summer activities are offered to children. It's really a nice ride very well appointed.

  • Start with scenes from prehistory (in the interest of current knowledge in this area), cross the fort in the middle ages, the forest with its animals, gatherers, hunters, etc. (not live), career (authentic) then the Troglodyte house inhabited into the 1960s which gives the impression that farmers are just left in the fields... there, there's "real" hens that convent , rabbits, pigs, geese, etc. Finally, a nice collection of old tools and a miniature reenactment of the Roque St Christophe. I always recommend starting by the Cazelle rock, visit the strong House of Reignac then then end with the Roque St Christophe - and my homes tenants always give me reason. A perfect walk in addition to digest after a good meal Perigord...

  • Excellent value for money, information leaflet on different languages. Extremely informative. Brilliant activities for children. Free parking.
  • Children really enjoyed the visit; interesting
  • Disappointment! The caves of the rock of Cazelle? Where are they? It's the small tunnel dug 50 meters long 5 years ago? 8 euros to walk in the Woods, it was awesome! I can't wait to go back!

  • Very good visit, signs on the course are full of humour. We are progressing through the greenery is very nice. Figurines just lack a little bit of refreshment.

  • Ideal for children from 4 years:-easy to address: the stagings are clear and allow them to understand - playful: they seek the stagings in the nature workshops are very friendly: - young and old participate - the "guide" is sometimes (too?) live, but especially nice (humorous): its activity does not tolerate the debordemement, he therefore leaves no room for overflow. If you are looking for a real prehistoric paintings, this is not the right place: these are re-enactments. Only a farm at the beginning of the 20th is original. I don't think this is suitable for adults without children.
