    • 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.

      Discover the prehistoric garden: set up in a 2 hectares park, this garden invites you to a playful and pedagogical discovery in the realm of Cro Magnon men and women.

    The cave was magnificent, truly breathtaking. Such a shame photography was not allowed. And more effort could have been made for non-French speakers on the tour. With basic French I felt I missed out on the details.

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

    These are spectacular caves, with truly amazing formations. But the tour was a bit of a let down. There were too many people in the tour party - those of us at the back couldn't see what the guide...

  • "Beautiful cave - worth the visit"

    4 / 5 Reviews posted by John R (Christchurch, New Zealand) on 06/09/2019

    Amazingly beautiful formations and the cave has been very well lit. Not a lot of art and some of it will have been covered by the ongoing calcification. But what is there is easy to see. Only seven...
