Grottes de Lascaux

Sorry we're closed but how about Lascaux 2 or maybe 4?

The Vézère Valley was home to some of Europe’s first settlers who came from the plains of Africa to settle here thousands of years ago. Prehistoric man took refuge in the many caves along the riverbanks the most well known is at Lascaux. Closed to visitors nowadays they can however, visit amazing interactive reproductions at Lascaux 2 and 4.

The Cave at Lascaux in the Black Périgord is one of the foremost sites in the world in terms of the quantity and quality of the paintings discovered on the site in 1940. Opened to the public in 1949, the cave was of such huge interest that over a million visitors came during the next few years.

Unfortunately, the resultant carbon dioxide and humidity began to destroy the artwork and so the cave was closed. Due to the large number of photographic images which existed it was possible to construct an exact replica nearby.

Lascaux 2, 3 and now 4!
