Cluzeaux de Saint-Pardoux-de-Mareuil

The troglodytic dwellings of Saint-Pardoux-de-Mareuil belong to the category of cliff bottom dwellings, which are usually natural caves used by men from the Early Middle Ages. Evidence leads to believe that a Christian religious community occupied these shelters in the first centuries of the Common Era. All the characteristics of troglodytic settlements are found at Saint-Pardoux: grain silos, water tanks, recesses, shelves, troughs… The sarcophagi found outside the site lead to suppose the existence of a necropolis on the hill.
