These impressive caves and cliff face are situated halfway between les Eyzies and Montignac-Lascaux.
The limestone wall has been eroded by the Vézère river to create natural rock shelters carved into the wall. These cavities were occupied by cave dwellers about 55,000 years ago and continued to be inhabited through the Middle Ages until the Renaissance period. Through each layer of the rock, you can learn about the fort and town through the ages.
Throughout the area you will find various reconstructions that show the dwellings as they would have been many, many years ago. Some with kitchen utensils and sleeping quarters, examples of the tools used during construction, and explanations about how people would've lived.
Situated in a stunning setting, the site can be visited unguided for free.
