🧐Historical zoom on the Dordogne with the castle of Malartrie, in La Roque Gageac . 🤩
➡️ In the Middle Ages, the Dordogne River provided a living for fishermen and gabariers in the village port.
➡️ In January 1957, a section of the cliff collapsed on part of the village. The damage is significant: houses are destroyed and 3 deaths.
➡️ In January 2010, It is a section of the ceiling of the troglodytic fort that collapses. The Fort of La Roque Gageac is reopened since 2020.
➡️ In June 2010, a large rock weighing several hundred tons threatens to fall on the village. The main road is closed for several weeks. Protective netting is put up to secure the area.
➡️ At the end of 2013, the road that crosses the village is closed for 5 months, to create the secure pedestrian lanes that now allow you to visit the village safely 😉
From your canoe, you can admire the village and even visit it 👍
