Embark on a nice loop walk from Les Eyzies via St Cirq, take a detour to the Grotte du Sorcie to admire prehistoric cave drawings
From your hotel you have to walk through town, cross over the railway line and begin the walk at Les Glycines Hotel. Then cross over the Dordogne River and walk alongside it for a while. Eventually you will then begin to walk through farmland and little communities, specifically St Cirq (just before reaching St Cirq, you can take a detour to the Grotte du Sorcier an interesting prehistoric cave where you can see carved animals.
Then walk through the village of St Cirq and over the railway tracks, which you will walk alongside for a while. As it is a very quiet line you can walk on the tracks instead of the main road (only about 5 trains per day, but even so keep your eyes and ears open). You then go back under the railway line and through a village with overhanging houses from the cliffs and then through farmland again. Eventually you see Les Eyzies in the view with cliffs opposite and you will walk alongside the Vevere River back to the starting point.
Registered as the Capital of the Prehistoric Times, the small town of Les-Eyzies-du-Tabac is a very interesting town to visit with its backdrop of cliffs and prehistoric links. The Musée Nationale de la Préhistoire is well worth a visit.
La Grotte du Sorcier – A prehistoric cave, decorated by the men of the Magdalenian period. It opens on the cliff side near a beautiful forest of bamboo. Prehistoric men here have carved animals (bison, horses, ibex) enigmatic geometric signs, and above all, three human figures, one of which is world famous: the wizard of Saint Cirq.
