One of the cradles of humanity in the périgord

This troglodytic cliff is located in the heart of the Périgord Noir between Montignac Lascaux and Les Eyzies. It is one of the cradles of humanity in the Dordogne!
The fort and the troglodytic city of La Roque St Christophe is a natural and breathtaking educational site not to be missed.


You and your family can come and take a tour all year round, every day, even when it’s raining.
In season, you can take part in guided tours that will appeal to the whole family. During the morning visit, enjoy demonstrations of lifting machines, which show how all the materials were transported during the construction of this city 40 meters above sea level. You can also discover how the semi-troglodytic houses were built.
If you prefer to take the time to discover this unique environment, then discover the site at your own pace. Enjoy the view from the large terrace overlooking the Vézère valley! You’ll be able to enjoy reconstructed scenes of life, a 3D film and scale models that will give you a better idea of what life was like in this troglodyte city at the time.
