Village de Tursac

It is in a wide plain on the banks of the Vézère that we discover the small town of Tursac not far from the village of Eyzies de Tayac, world capital of prehistory and the Lascaux cave.

The harmonious curves of the Vézère give the village a special character. The meanders and cliffs have favored a very ancient human occupation which has continued throughout the centuries. Many sites bear witness to this sustainability, it is an ideal starting point for visiting the Madeleine site, the Maison Forte de Reignac, a troglodyte fort but also the newly redeveloped Préhistoparc for young and old.

The church of Tursac, dedicated to the Virgin Mary, was built in the 12th century. Its history allows us to observe the transition from a Romanesque parish church to a fortified church.
