La Roque Saint-Christophe

THE PREHISTORY AND HISTORY OF A TROGLODYTE SITE LIKE NO OTHER IN THE WORLD

This site, which boasts a setting of rare and wild beauty, is also remarkable for its powerful forms, numerous dwellings, and the length of time it was inhabited by man.

This immense wall of limestone, rising 300 feet above the ground and stretching more than half a mile long, has been constantly eroded by the river and frost weathering, shaping over a hundred rock shelters and long lofty terraces.

These natural cavities, occupied by man since prehistoric times, were later transformed into a fortress and a city in the Middle Ages.
