La Roque Saint Christophe in just a minute


Production : logo © 2019

Halfway between Les Eyzies and Montignac-Lascaux, the rock face of Roque Saint Christophe rises on the summit of the Vézère. This limestone wall, 1km long and up to 80m high, constantly undermined by the river and frost, has continued to develop from a hundred rock shelters and long air terraces. These natural cavities have been inhabited for 55,000 years and then in the Middle Ages they were transformed into a fortress and a troglodyte city until the beginning of the Renaissance.
