    • Come and discover the Régourdou site, classified as a historic monument, located 800 meters from the Lascaux caves. This authentic site combines prehistory and a living brown bear park. During the guided tour, you will discover a burial of a Neanderthal man dating back 90,000 years. With the presentation of the prehistoric site, the museum, and the abyss, you will understand the environment and learn about the cultural behavior of our distant ancestors. A real immersion in the time of the Neanderthals of the Lascaux hill. In the park, you will observe the brown bear up close and attend the feeding during the visit. An emblematic animal from prehistory to the present day, you will discover its way of life, its link with man and its environmental stakes.

      During the visit free games: excavation bin and mystery bin. The Régourdou site was the location for the filming of the film "The Old Bear and the Child", which retraces the life of Roger Constant, the site's inventor.
      Painting and engraving workshops on stone and wood and wall of parietal expression on the theme of the bear on reservation. Exhibition on Neanderthals and on the different species of bears in the world.
      This visit will delight both adults and children: an exciting journey to the Neanderthal era awaits you!

      All day, souvenir shop, drinks, ice cream, pancakes, waffles, sandwiches.

    I really liked the simplicity of this site and how we could see where the actual neanderthal was found. Especially compared to the sophistication and commercialisation of Lascaux 4. I also thought the guide was phenomenal. She was coordinating visitors arriving at different times and was very enthusiastic and knowedgeable. She translated for me at the end of each session. HOWEVER.. I visited the site out of my interest in the neanderthal burial - NOT the bears. Yet the bears were the overriding presentation of Regourdou to an extreme degree. ( and in this day and age their conditions were rather sad and depressing) Is this a professional neanderthal site or a zoo?

    Interesting tribute to amateur archaeologist, Roger Constant, who began excavating on his farm near Lascaux. Also some really adorable bears!!
