New facility that mirrors the original caves,which are in the hillside behind the centre and has faithfully reproduced all of the prehistoric wall paintings. Just a short distance from the originals.....!

This was the highlight of my whole week. Seeing individual works of art is not the same as walking into a room and being surrounded by cave art, just like people were thousands of years ago. Excellent use of technology later in the tour that...More

While one cannot go into the original Lascaux cave, this reproduction is so realistic that one forgets that it is a reproduction. The artistic ability of these early painters is breathtaking. Not only were they good artists, but they used the cave surfaces to their...More

You have to take the tour and note, you don’t actually see the original art or cave, it’s a man made one matching exactly the original. Well worth the visit though.
