Dordogne is both an alliance of wonderful cities with villages of a rare beauty so that tourists do not get tired  of exploring it. Certainly, it is a gastronomic destination, but it is also a real treasure with its castles, gardens and caves. It subsequently wreaks havoc in terms of visists in New Aquitaine, citing only Lascaux.

The cave of Lascaux is indeed a sign of the prehistoric life where you can contemplate paintings realized by the Cro-Magnons. Although the Montignac-Lascaux International Center for Parietal Art currently does not have a visit to the original version, it has a replica to reassure the 1,550 visitors every day in search of such a jewel.

This is not the only place where prehistoric men have left their fingerprints. There is also the roque de Saint-Christophe, a proof of the geological traces that the Neanderthal who used it as a refuge until the rebirth. This will be the opportunity to discover the structure of the city and its evolution inside a hollow cliff (90 m underground and 800 m long).


Still in the underground exploration, the show of "Cathedral of Cristal" suggested by the Gulf of Proumeyssac is simply astounding. It is a cavern with stalactites and stalagmites showing an image of siren, waterfall, jellyfish and octopus.

Let us return now to the surface, where among the 1001 castles which are in the department, that of Castelnaud and that of the Milandes catch more tourists. The first is distinguished by its incredible collection of medieval weapons and a glimpse of the life of the castle of former times.As for the other, the splendor comes from its gardens, its turrets, its pointed roofs, its mullioned windows, its stained-glass windows and its gargoyles, all in perfect harmony.

But let us confine ourselves a little on the gardens, those of Marqueyssac and the Manor of Eyrignac are distinguished from others with their fabulous boxwood cut with complex shapes and swirling. Namely the gardens of Marqueyssac light up in candles and musicians there happen for the happiness of the visitors.
