Welcome to the Grottes du Roc de Cazelle
Come and discover the Caves of the Roc de Cazelle a striking prehistoric park where you can see reconstructions of the life of our distant ancestors on the very places where they lived. Your visit will take you from prehistory to the Middle Ages, when the site was excavated and converted into a real fortress.
You will walk along the steep cliffs, entirely excavated by caves, refuges, underground passages and habitats in which countless tools and weapons carved by prehistoric men have been collected.
You will discover more than 100 characters and animals perfectly reconstituted and in particular mammoths and woolly rhinoceroses in real size.
You will be able to discover the monolithic house of the last inhabitants of Cazelle, entirely carved in the rock (troglodytic dwelling) and still occupied in the 1960s. The traditional habitat was reconstituted there, faithful to the habits and the local history of the Périgord.
The route is easy, fun and effortless, organized in chronological order to take you on a journey through time.
You will also discover a mini-farm and its animals, and you will be able to try your hand at the Archimedes screw which allows you to get up from the water without effort.
In summer, you can take part in educational workshops at no extra cost: propulsor shooting, cave painting, flint knapping and fire lighting, led by enthusiastic instructors.
The Roc de Cazelle caves are open all year round.
