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 cliffside site offered a fabulous afternoon out. The views across the Vezere valley were worth the trip alone, but the history (the site is believed to have been occupied from 55,000 years ago...

  • A great place to visit. Informative, historic, amazing. Great for Family and enough to hold your interest without getting tedious. Absolutely astonishing that large numbers of people lived, worked and died here. The tour is at your own pace and information boards are in French and English. The ticket and information centre have all you need and there's a good restaurant at the bottom. Be amazed.
  • Amazing place steeped in history. Very educational & fantastic experience. Allow enough time to take it all in. All information signs in French, English & German. The video is in French & subtitled in English although very fast & difficult to follow for this reason - sit up close if you can.
