    • 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.

    First this is the must visit for all, however it has many many issues: Tour groups are too big! We were lucky to always have a good spot to listen to the guide and see everything, yet many people were struggling to hear or see as the space is limited and narrow. Story telling needs major improvement. It was really nice start on telling how caves were found, but after this the whole narrative became "we don't know" "image"... if you have nothing to say talk in general about cave art of europe or world etc... Perhaps add additional track near the original cave now it is like a garbage fence area. On the nice side it was really nice to enter the cave in the dark!! Wow!

    The place certainly is worth a visit if you're in the area even though it's not the real cave but a replica. You can only get in with a tour but I found the tour a bit dragged out, there's a lot of information about how the replica cave was created etc (about 30 min) before entering the cave itself.

    Even if you know this is not the 'real deal', the cave is still very impressive. Be sure to call (www in France: not that good) in advance to make a reservation for the English tour. The tours are easily filled up, making the drive to the site without a reservation a gamble. And as stated below: the french tour does not contain one word english.... The story and the cave are really wonderful.

    Wow! We weren’t sure what to expect from Lascaux 2 and the “replica” - but decided on this instead of the visitor centre at the bottom of the hill - and glad we did. Jean-Louis was a great and...
