Jardins Suspendus de Marqueyssac - Individual visitors - Marqueyssac gardens

Candlelight Evenings 2024 (reservation required)

 Every Thursday evening in July and August, from 7 pm until midnight 

Each evening, 2000 candles are placed in the gardens and over 150 light sources illustrate the Cliff Walk to the waterfalls. At twilight, all the romanticism of Marqueyssac is accentuated by the play of light and shadow, emphasising the beauty of the cliff and the vegetation. Nightfall is the perfect opportunity to discover the Dordogne valley, its castles, and its illuminated, picturesque villages; Castelnaud, Beynac, La Roque Gageac…

Reservation required, tickets exclusively available online. Click here.

Every Thursday four musical entertainments
punctuate the  walk:

* A pianist in the tearoom
* A Jazz Swing Trio at La Rotonde
* A jazz band on the esplanade
* A saxophone quartet, ‘FlexiSaX’, on the Grande Allée
