One of the most beautiful panoramas in Périgord Noir

Welcome to Fort de La Roque Gageac

Fort de la Roque Gageac is an ancient 12th-century medieval fortification 120m above the Dordogne River, offering an exceptional 180° panoramic view over the valley.

Built into the rock, the Fort was an elaborate defensive site. You'll discover a moat, a stunner, a parapet walk, archways, loopholes and gunports.
Partially collapsed in 2010, the site has undergone 10 years of major consolidation and safety work.

Jean-Max TOURON, who is passionate about troglodytism, prehistory and the Middle Ages, has decided to restore and develop the site in autumn 2019.
The Fort de la Roque Gageac today unveils an exhibition showcasing the great figures of the past and the great historical deeds of La Roque-Gageac.
At the end of a vertiginous ascent, you'll discover a natural cavity and 18 columns supporting the vault, which serve as the backdrop for the Fort's exhibition.
