Grand Roc Cave

An exceptional gem of concretions in the Dordogne

Welcome to the Grand Roc Cave

Discovered by Jean Maury on 29 April 1924, The caves of the Great Roc were arranged and opened for the visit in 1927. They open at half the height of an impressive cliff overlooking the Vézère valley in Les Eyzies.

In this place, the spectator amazed circulates in a veritable mineral forest composed of an incredible variety and density of crystallizations rarely equalled in the other caves.
Calcite flows line the soil in places. Of the ceiling hang from sometimes fine stalactites, sometimes imposing and translucent. From the ground leave stalagmites sometimes joining together to create columns. We also admire a lot of eccentrics and draperies highlighted by a light that intensifies the colours of the concretions. A few tens of meters, Visit the Shelters of Laugerie low.
Take advantage of the low Laugerie shelters a few meters away to allow the children to enrich their visit through workshops "animals and prehistoric hunting" and "Cro-Magnon architect".
