The Grotte de Saint-Cirq, also known as the Grotte du Sorcier, is one of 15 UNESCO World Heritage sites, among the prehistoric sites and ornate caves of the Vézère Valley. It is located on the territory of the delegated commune of Saint-Cirq, in Dordogne, attached since 1 January 2019 to the new commune of Les Eyzies.

The cave of Saint-Cirq contains prehistoric engravings dating from the Solutrean and Magdalenian. Animals (bison, horses and ibex), geometric signs and human representations, including the human figure called the sorcerer by André Glory, are present.
