    • THE EMOTION OF ORIGINS


      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 hall of the bulls which 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 feeling of walking through the original cave. Throughout the visit, the guide will strive to recreate the emotion of discovery and introduce you to the intimate and universal art of Lascaux. Lascaux II, offers in-depth and thematic visits by reservation.

    Wonderful to see these renderings of copies of Lescaux itself. Use of torch gave us a different perspective from Lescaux IV

    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.

    4 / 5 Reviews posted by Petrus61 (Nice, France) on 03/08/2021

    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...
