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

(4.2/5 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. 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.

  • We spent an hour 30 min on this course in nature. Prehistoric scenes are very well presented and very diverse. The children enjoyed get the animals hidden in the cliff. We crossed a tunnel dug into the rock to reach a cave and we had a panoramic view of the Valley. The tour ends with the troglodyte farm, still inhabited in 1966. Many agricultural items have been collected. Leaving, we took a photo of funny family who allowed us to put ourselves in the shoes of Neanderthal men in an instant. This place really liked to our 3 boys aged 8 to 12 years.
