    Architecture, castles and historic districts

    D 48 F - 24620 Les Eyzies-de-Tayac

    Not so much a château, more a remarkable fortified structure, sited in an exceptional location; the middle of nowhere perhaps (rather secretive) and this only adds to its charm. On first acquaintance, the site is surprising on account of its troglody..

  • 2 Font-de-Gaume Grotto Recommended Recommended

    Archaeological and historical sites

    4 avenue des Grottes F - 24620 Les Eyzies-de-Tayac

    This site is 120 m long and is the last prehistoric site with multicoloured figures still open to the public. Most of the paintings date back to the middle of the Magdalenian age, while some of the wall paintings belong to the same period as Lascaux ..

  • 3 Cave of the Grand Roc Recommended Recommended

    Nature and gardens

    D 47 F - 24620 Les Eyzies-de-Tayac

    From the terrace at the entrance to the cave (discovered by J Maury in 1924), there is a fine view of the Vézère Valley. After 40m of narrow tunnels, there is an extraordinary profusion of stalactites and stalagmites of coral-like beauty (note the &q..

    Archaeological and historical sites

    20 rue du Moyen-Âge F - 24620 Les Eyzies-De-Tayac

    This archaeological site open to the public reveals the successive phases of the cave's occupation. A museum now occupies the shelter, exhibiting objects found during excavations. The highlight is a bas-relief of an ibex that once adorned the ceiling..

  • 6 Tayac church

    Religious buildings

    Tayac F - 24620 Les Eyzies-de-Tayac

    This fortified 12C church has retained some of its defensive features in the form of two crenellated towers with lauze (stone tile) roofs. This fine building is striking for its three-nave plan and exposed timber-framed ceiling.

  • 7 Cro-Magnon rock shelter

    Archaeological and historical sites

    D 47 F - 24620 Les Eyzies-de-Tayac

    The Abri de Cro-Magnon (Cro-Magnon rock shelter), which is indicated by a simple commemorative plaque, is where a 35,000-year-old burial place was discovered in 1868. This major find unearthed five men's skeletons and one child's skeleton.
