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!
