    What they've pulled off here is remarkable. The center is a marvel of concrete and glass with incredible exhibition space and an immersive history of the region and its artifacts. The caves are indeed reproductions, but they're so masterfully done that it volleys over the uncanny valley and you'll truly believe you've trancended history.

    Have seen many cave paintings. This was one amongst many we have visited all around the world. The best part is that till the end one does not realize that it's a reproduction of the original. Love Christian who was our guide. If you speak or understand english then he's the guide for you

    Absolutely astonishing. Visited Lascaux 2 twenty odd years ago and was totally mesmerized but 4 is in a whole new world. The CAVE is brilliant, the displays are informative and fascinating and the tour, in English, superb. Go it's worth every cent of the entrance fee and more.

    Lascaux is the most famous of the prehistoric caves, but the cave itself isn't open to the public. Lascaux IV is a full-scale reproduction of the cave -- and touring the reproduction is an...

    The forecast for this Sunday in October was rain, heavy rain. So, no need for any other reason but visit Lascaux IV. We were a little bit concerned as we did not book our tickets before coming and...
