Categories: Landmarks, Tourist Spots
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. Five layers of terraces and caves have been naturally carved into the cliff by frost and the Vezere river below. You can scale the cliffs and roam among these settlements, which date from the days of cavemen up through the Renaissance. Explore on your own, or ask for a naturalist to guide you.

Stunning site of surprisingly rich archaeological significance. Fascinating and well worth a visit.

Splendid view! Impressive 'rocky' terrace! Must-see!
Don't believe in Troglodytes? - Well, you may start now!
Found the place by chance and it was a great experience. The remains are more middle age than palaeolithic but you can imagine how it was
