2. LASCAUX IV

Additional price: Adult: $10.14 – Child under 18: free

Duration 60mn

Self-guided visit of the National Prehistory Museum, the most important one in France.

 

Seventy six years ago today, on 12 September 1940 four teenage boys made one of the most significant archaeological discoveries of the 20th century: the extraordinary cave of Lascaux. Opened to the public in 1948, it was not long before more than 1,000 visitors a day came to see the Stone Age images that changed the way in which we think about the history of art. Sadly, by 1955 there were already signs of trouble. And so in 1963 access to the cave was restricted. A replica was built, every bit as extraordinary as its original, and opened in 1983. Lascaux 2 attracts over 250,000 visitors a year. In a few months time, 15 December, Lascaux 4 will open.

Additional price: Adult: $15.21 – Child +13: $11.83 – Child 5-13: $8.45 – Child under 5: free

Duration 60 minutes

On a cliff overlooking a tranquil section of the River Vezere is the remains of a large troglodyte town. The cliff has evidence of use as a shelter for Neanderthal man (50000 BC), Cro-Magnon man (25000 BC) and since then up until the Renaissance in 1588 when the trogolodyte town and fortress that had grown up was destroyed in the Wars of Religion.

The town occupied 5 terraces in the cliff face using naturally hollowed out caves in the limestone cliff. 91 metres above the ground and more than 800 metres long, the Roque Saint Christophe really is a remarkable troglodyte development.

 

 

4. REIGNAC TROGLODYTIC CASTLE

February to December

Additional price: Adult: $15.21 - Child 5-13: $6.76 - Child under 5: free

Duration 60 minutes

The Maison Forte de Reignac is a kind of fortified Manor House that has been built into the rock. The majority of its roof is the overhanging cliff that is above it. Its modest appearance on the outside belies the scale of the building on the inside.

The Maison Forte de Reignac has been closed to the public until recently. It is now the only cliff-castle of its type in France that is so totally intact.

Permanent exhibition of medieval torture instruments inside.

Like many of the castles in the region, the chateau played its key role during the Hundred Years War, and then later in the Wars of Religion. A village once stood around the castle but is no longer in existence.
