    Very interesting site. There are some small rock dwellings to explore, and a museum with a collection of bones and fossils. The highlight though is a guided tour of a small cave, featuring 17000 to 19000 year old carvings, including a very rare human figure. We were lucky to be in a small group, and our guide was excellent. Well worth visiting.

    Very nice home ! The museum is interesting, the cave is small but interesting through the passionate animation of the guide. We did not dare to visit the troglodyte habitat, access to which is via a ladder. We really appreciated the fact of sharing a moment to observe pareidolia on the rock walls with the guides, while they were on break;)

    Small cave whose guided visit takes about an hour, all in a small group. The welcome is warm. The guide is really brilliant, very professional, we see that she has a perfect command of her subject. There is also a small museum that you can visit on your own and a cave dwelling. The setting is really charming.

  • "Uninformed and upset"

    1 / 5 Reviews posted by spawniac2022 on 09/06/2022

    Drove all the way here to be refused entry as I have children under 4. Nowhere in my research of this site did it say this. Very disappointed and upset.

    This is a very small private cave site, and the tour guide does a great job of showing off their special paintings. This is one of the few sites that has a representation of a human figure (in...

    Small cave, but with very interesting carvings. The attached museum is worth a visit, too (included in the entrance fee). The guide was very friendly and very knowledgeable. We were allowed to keep...
