Roque Saint-Christophe Fort et Cite Troglodytiques, a 1 k (.5 mi) long and 80 m (87 yd) high limestone cliff in Dordogne, has housed settlements since 55,000 BCE. Five layers of terraces and caves have been naturally carved into the cliff by frost and the Vezere river below. You can scale the cliffs and roam among these settlements, which date from the days of cavemen up through the Renaissance. Explore on your own, or ask for a naturalist to guide you.

  • this is an amazing place, preserved and authentic site of prehistoric settlement and through the religion wars in France. It's truly a must see and will leave an impression on old and young.

  • It's something completely something else than a castle or a cave. Very nice! Price is also reasonable. Safety is good for small kids.
  • Fascinating and well kept site. Loads of information and guides available if required. Shady car park, snack bar and toilets. Not to be missed, but there are several steep stairways and a lot of uneven ground so reasonable mobility needed.
