Rochemenier

Village in The Loire Valley

Rochemenier is one of the region's best examples of troglodyte culture. You can explore the remains of two adjacent farmsteads, complete with dwellings, stables and a chapel, that were originally excavated to provide lime fertilizer. A film and an interactive map of troglodytic sites around the world were added in 2017. The printed guide is available in 18 languages.
