    • Bara-Bahau Cave is an ornate Upper Paleolithic cave. Located along the Vézère valley in the commune of Bugue in the Dordogne department in New Aquitaine, it measures approximately 100 meters.

      It is of geological interest, in particular by its eccentric concretions, and especially prehistoric, by the parietal engravings it contains. It takes its name from a local Occitan onomatopoeia which means “badaboum” in reference to the collapsed blocks visible in the first room. Private property open to the public, it was classified as a historical monument in 1961.

    Not large or spectacular but very interesting and the tour guide was excellent. Well worth going in.

    Good cave. Very decent tour from Sophie who showed us the cave and its history. Lots to understand and definitely a quieter affair than some of the places to see in the area. Merci!

    Cave filled with ancient engravings. Not the biggest or showiest, but with dedicated guides and a fascinating personal tour. Our family of 4 got a personal guide and she was so informative. Superb.
