La Roque Saint-Christophe - Fort et Cité troglodytiques
Halfway up a cliff stretching 80 m high and 1 km long, La Roque Saint Christophe is located in the Dordogne at Peyzac-Le-Moustier, between Les Eyzies and the Lascaux caves of Montignac. Here, man began occupying the site as early as prehistoric times, at the base of the immense limestone wall; in medieval times, a fort and troglodyte city took shape here. The surprising tour will enable you to understand the configuration of troglodyte dwellings. Kitchens, places of worship, ingenious civil engineering machines that really function: all this is beautifully reconstructed and explained throughout the tour, making this troglodyte village an open book on 55,000 years of human survival. A large-screen 3D projection on the terrace traces the development of the cliff through the ages: don't miss it!
