An overview

of the Trip...

Les visites guidées ou libres (avec audioguide ou livret) sont au même tarifs. Des options vous seront ensuite proposées (visite de la ferme, ateliers enfants, repas…) selon les plannings. Pour l’audioguide, munissez-vous de vos écouteurs. Si vous n’en disposez pas, des écouteurs vous sont proposés pour 2€ seulement.

Guided or unguided visits (with audioguide or booklet) are at the same price. You will then be offered options (farm visit, children’s workshops, meals, etc.) according to the schedules. For the audio guide, bring your headphones. If you don’t have one, headphones are available for just € 2.

Closing of the site from October 24

Due to road works on the D706 departmental road from October 24 between Les Eyzies and Tursac, the site will unfortunately be made inaccessible to a large number of visitors. We are forced to close our doors exceptionally earlier this year. You can therefore visit the Site de la Madeleine until October 23 inclusive. We are sincerely sorry and we hope to see you again as soon as we open on March 1, 2023. The Madeleine team
