    • Lascaux II, opened in 1983, is the first facsimile, located in Montignac on the hill protected by Unesco, a few meters from the original cave. Discover the exact replica of the axial diverticulum and the bull hall that represents 90% of the paintings of the famous cave. Leaving the light of day for the world of darkness, you will have the privilege of being the only group and the sensation of walking through the original cave. Throughout the visit, the guide will endeavor to recreate the emotion of discovery and introduce you to the intimate and universal art of Lascaux. Lascaux II, offers in-depth and thematic tours by reservation.

    Very good visit, an amazing site. Only saw Lascaux 2, and it was very good. Just thought to reserve your tickets long time before visiting because it's full especially in summer time. No photos allowed into the cave.

    Very good replica of the two main halls of the original cave site with its many coloured rock wall paintings. Guided tours only in French, but the experience of the "real" cave is absolutely worth it! P.S.: A much bigger and larger cave with wall paintings is the one near Rouffignac, where everything is as it was 10,000 years ago.

    Complete waste of money. Like the other Lascaux caves. They're all replica's with utherly boring musea. You'd better put your money into buying an encyclopedia if you want to learn something about prehistoric paintings instrao of joining one of the tours, watching some information signs while a French guide is making up a story how the chin of a horse was drawn by using the shape of the hand.

    We visited Lascaux II with our family. The guide was nice and gave us plenty of information about the discovery of the original caves in 1940 and its closure to the public in 1963. This replica of 2...
