Village of Sergeac
Sergeac is situated in the Périgord Noir region on the banks of the Vézère, which is bordered by high cliffs at the foot of which numerous prehistoric sites have been discovered.
After passing in front of a monumental cross at a crossroads, in a medieval style not often seen in Périgord, you can see the imposing mass of the church built towards the end of the 11th century on Roman ruins.
The village is also home to the authentic Castel Merle site, with its 10 remarkable rock shelters occupied by Neanderthal man 85,000 years ago, then by Cro-Magnon man 35,000 years ago. This is one of the highest concentrations of rock shelters in Europe, reflecting the exceptional continuity of human occupation.
