This kilometre-long, 80-metre-high limestone cliff has been sculpted with under-rock shelters and long aerial terraces with impressive overhangs, occupied by man in prehistoric times (55,000 years ago),then modified to become a fort and a city in the Middle Ages, and inhabited until the early Renaissance.
    Few troglodytic sites can rival the Roque Saint-Christophe in terms of age...

    Few troglodytic sites can rival the Roque Saint-Christophe in terms of age and surface area. Discover the lives and dwellings of our ancestors, the 15th century city and a collection of medieval lifting machines. Highlights of the visit: the arrival on the Grande Terrasse, offering an exceptional view of the Vézère valley, and prehistory workshops open to all (painting, fire lighting, flint knapping...).
