    • This cave is interesting both from a geological and a prehistoric point of view. During the guided tour you will be able to admire impressive flows of calcite, delicate stalactites, transparent draperies and countless stalagmites. You will also discover prehistoric paintings.

      They represent the authentic testimony of our ancestors’ art. You can see horses, bisons and one rare human representation in prehistoric art.

    3 / 5 Reviews posted by jude657 (Oxford, United Kingdom) on 11/09/2019
