Le Village de la Madeleine

The troglodyte village of La Madeleine has been home to humans for millennia. Known worldwide for its eponymous prehistoric site from the Magdalenian (- 17 / - 000 BC), this large natural site is made up of cavities built since the early Middle Ages and inhabited until the end of the 12th century. A hideout of nobles and peasants in turn, this limestone village today bears witness to the ingenuity of the "people of the cliffs", who knew how to live in harmony with their environment without ever distorting it. Today, the site comes back to life thanks in particular to the passion of a team of young people, who are keen to honor the ancestral trades of Périgord, workshops for children and moments of celebration with the traditional ball of la Madeleine (July/August) New Summer 000: Farmer's Farm, animal tracking, cosmetic treatment in the medicinal garden and traditional ball!
