Grand Roc Cave

An exceptional gem of concretions in the Dordogne

Welcome to the Grand Roc Cave

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

In this place, the amazed spectator circulates in a veritable mineral forest composed of an incredible variety and density of crystallizations rarely matched 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 Low Laugerie shelters.
Take advantage of the low Laugerie shelters a few metres away to allow the children to enrich their visit through workshops "animals and the prehistoric hunt" and "Cro-Magnon architect".
