La Roque Saint Christophe

The largest troglodyte site in Europe

La Roque Saint Christophe

La Roque Saint Christophe is a troglodytic habitat inhabited by man since prehistoric times. Here you’ll discover the imprint left by our ancestors, as well as life in the Middle Ages through a variety of structures, tools and civil engineering machinery.

This troglodytic city is one of the most impressive in the Périgord! A visit to this 80-metre-high dwelling will take you on a 1km-long walk through the rock. Simply spectacular!
