Landmark
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.

  • 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!
