Roque Saint-Christophe Fort et Cite Troglodytiques, Peyzac-le-Moustier

4.5
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.

    Site interesting, full of history. We did not tour as we were with our baby. Despite this, the panels explain enough. Attention, demonstrations of hoists are that morning. At the foot of the on-site free parking with wc. The rate for 2 entered adults is € 17.50 and if you come with a baby, forgotten the stroller and preferred carrier.

    This remarkable site marked by several periods of the history of men worth a visit! Fun as well as informative one time very pleasant to spend, including with children a small market in unusual terrain will satisfy. Beautiful!

    The Roque Saint-Christophe is a Troglodyte village worth visiting. There are explanatory posters, re-enactments in model, a video and as well as time machineries life-size replicas. You will also learn that a network of 22 points of monitoring served as links between different villages to protect themselves from attacks (a bit like in the Lord of the crosspiece). To see once in a lifetime.
