Roque Saint-Christophe Fort et Cite Troglodytiques, a 1 k (.5 mi) long and 80 m (87 yd) high limestone cliff in Dordogne, has housed settlements since 55,000 BCE.

  • Very nice site, a beautiful discovery of our history. Texts, models, machines that make us travel through time. During one visit in the Perigord.

  • We stumbled upon this site by accident but it is worth the visit. The troglodyte village was destroyed, but the proposed reconstructions can well imagine (we will see!). The view of the Vézère is superb and it's a good ride that can be done even when it rains since the tracking is done in cavities excavated in height.

  • passing end-of-day on this site, we were able to visit it and enjoy it. A reconstruction in 3D the troglodyte village allows to better imagine the appearance of the village in the middle age.

  • Amazing place and well preserved. Worth a visit. The facilities are great and the food onsite is a bargain.
  • A very interesting site of a former cliff side town. There aren't any structures left, but you can wander through the cliff and look at the fittings carved into the rock and let your imagination fill in the rest.
  • Stunning site of surprisingly rich archaeological significance. Fascinating and well worth a visit.
  • Really amazing views
  • Splendid view! Impressive 'rocky' terrace! Must-see!
