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 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 course is easy, playful and effortless, organized in a chronological sense to make you travel 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.
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.
