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.

  • What a wonderful visit, they were very brave to live in this place in the cliff. Amazing place in history to see if you have the opportunity to do...

  • A must see site when you are in the Dordogne. Beautiful views. Walk and gaze at your leisure upon 65,000* years of hominin history.  more »
  • A journey through the cliff makes us understand the size and life of this former troglodyte village. Lots of stairs to climb and no flat land. A good family walk
