Grottes du Roc de Cazelle

Prehistory, history and nature in the land of man

Welcome to the caves of the Roc de Cazelle

Come and discover the Cazelle rock caves a striking prehistoric park where you can see reconstructions of the life of our distant ancestors in the very places where they lived.

You will follow the steep cliffs of Cazelle, completely excavated by caves, refuges, underground and habitats in which countless tools and weapons carved by prehistoric men have been collected.

With more than 100 characters and animals perfectly reconstituted, including mammoths and woolly rhinoceroses in real size, you will witness many scenes restoring the life of our ancestors, plunging you chronologically from the Prehistory in the Middle Ages where the site was dug and built into a real fortress.

You will also discover the monolithic house of the last inhabitants of Cazelle, entirely cut into the rock (troglodytic dwelling) and still occupied in the 1960s. The traditional habitat has been reconstituted, faithful to the habits and local history of the Périgord.

The course is easy, playful and effortless, organized in a chronological sense to make you travel through time.
At the end of the course, children and the greatest can have fun in a mini caving park.
You will also discover a mini-farm and its animals, a small mill that raises the water of the Beune and you will be able to try your hand at handling the Archimedes screw that allows you to raise the water without effort.

During the summer, you will be able to participate in educational workshops at no extra cost: propeller shooting, wall painting, flint size and lighting of fires framed by passionate animators.

The Roc de Cazelle caves are open all year round.
