Camping Dordogne near the Lascaux caves

Known throughout the world, the Lascaux caves owe their reputation to the quality of the paintings and engravings that it contains, making it one of the most important decorated caves of the Paleolithic.

The nicknames speak for themselves: Sistine Chapel of the Perigordian or Versailles of Prehistory.

The age of its paintings and engravings are estimated to be between 18,000 and 17,000 years.
Discovered in September 1940 by four teenagers, it is located in the Black Perigord in the Vézère Valley in the commune of Montignac.

Today, the visit is done by a reproduction of a breathtaking realism.
An unforgettable visit.

The Thot Espace Cro-Magnon, located a few kilometers away, is an interesting complement.
