The 50,000 year history of La Roque Saint Christophe

The 50,000 year history of La Roque Saint Christophe

If you visit La Roque, you won’t be the first. The limestone cliffs of the Vezere Valley have been home to settlers for, oooh, around 50,000 years. It was relatively recently – a mere 1,500 years ago – that La Roque was extended and fortifications added. The cave complex is now a staggering 1km long and rises in five galleries to over 80 metres in height. A highlight of the Dordogne, not least to see if you can find the fabled lost treasure, left by the English.
