In the footsteps of the Men of Lascaux Stage 5: Les Eyzies-Le Bugue
From Terrasson-Lavilledieu to Limeuil, where the Vézère joins the Dordogne, the river flows through one of the most beautiful regions of Périgord. This fifth stage will take you from Eyzies to Le Bugue. Situated at the confluence of the Beune and Vézère rivers, the village of Les Eyzies is sometimes dubbed the "world capital of prehistory". You'll discover a host of archaeological sites, including the Cro-Magnon shelter, the Font de Gaume cave and the Pataud shelter. There are also a number of information centres in the village, including the Pôle International de Préhistoire and the Musée National de Préhistoire. Then head to Le Bugue via the hamlet of Peuch and the village of St Cirq.
