We went here with the kids because I used to go here with my grandparents when I was a kid. It is ok, but not a wow experience. I would say a nice 1.5 hour add-on to visiting Les Eyzies and the Vezere valley. Pricing is low and not a hindrance to just slap this on to an afternoon. But if you need to prioritize, it is way after Lascaux, Beynac, Canoeing, Castelnaud and some others.

this is an amazing place, preserved and authentic site of prehistoric settlement and through the religion wars in France. It's truly a must see and will leave an impression on old and young.

We visited this place which was occupied since prehistoric times and until the religion wars in France. It was completely destroyed during these wars. Nevertheless one can get a rather good idea of what it was to live in such a city above the river. The tour of this place takes about one hour and there is a nice panoramic view of the river and valley below.

A must-see in Dordogne! Breathtaking views, fascinating history and very easy to access. There is even a well priced and great restaurant at the foot of the rock formation!

Nice site to visit to get a feel for the regional history and to see how things were done in the old times. Entrance fee is a bit steep for what's offered though. Good to spend about 1.5 to 2 hours.

Very nice site to be visited to understand more about the region. The view is great and it's a nice walk to go through the site. Wear comfortable shoes as it is difficult to walk.

Fantastic - interesting and perfect amount of time for young children. Some written English translation too which is very helpful.

We really enjoyed visiting this site, that has been used for thousands of years. It's the best of all worlds - ample parking, reasonable price, outdoors, fantastic views from the terrace, interesting information boards with English translations, and it's always more enjoyable to walk where others have walked and see how they actually lived, rather than looking at a diorama in a museum. This was one of the highlights of our trip to the Dordogne - very reminiscent of the cave dwellings in Arizona, etc. Lots of steps but easy to negotiate unless you have mobility issues. A must-see, in our opinion.

Based on some negative comments here in trip advisor we almost missed this fantastic monument of ancient times. Against some critical statements here we loved the place and found it one of the many highlights of our week in the Périgord. This is much more than a walk on a terrace with views over the Vezère valley. Many panels explain life and development at the site over the thousands of years. Various models of the site and tools and machinery that was used for daily life here are on life size display and their use can be demonstrated. Audio and video materials complement the visit. Finally, it’s a pleasantly cool place when the sun stands high and temperatures are on their peak.

A fascinating place. Well worth a visit. Lots of steps and a bit uneven so be careful if you are a little unsteady.
