Fort du Roc de Tayac in Les Eyzies

Fort du Roc de Tayac in Les Eyzies

This incredible cliff fortress has been closed for decades but is now open to the public again! The fortress overlooks the Vézère. In the Middle Ages, the fort had a right of way, which was a kind of toll on the river at the time of numerous attacks during the French-English wars.

Prehistoric shelters were built and in the Middle Ages, a castle and semi-cave dwellers lived here. The castle was demolished around 1500. At the beginning of the 20th century, a well digger, Gabriel Galou (also discoverer of the gouffre de Proumeyssac) exploited the various cavities of the cliff to create an inn with a restaurant and a reception room.

During this exceptional visit, Marie Calonne makes you dance to historical music and offers a small aperitif. Her enthusiasm and anecdotes make this an unforgettable visit for young and old. Créateur de Joie! Come to the Dordogne and eat, drink and dance!
