Lascaux Sightseeing tours – Visit Painted Caves & See amazing Prehistoric Art. 8 hours = €850.00Eu ~~~
In March 1868, the geologist Louis Lartet discovered five skeletons in the Cro-Magnon rock shelter at Les Eyzies-de-Tayac. These skeletons proved to be the earliest known examples of Homo sapiens – and the site of its discovery: the cliff/outcropping or “cro” on Mr. Magnon’s property – is where we derive the name for our ancestors from the Paleolithic era.: the Cro Magnon.
Another 20 kms up the Vezere Valley near Montignac is where we find the famous caverns of Lascaux. It was here, in 1940, that three teenagers followed their dog down the shaft of what was to become the most famous cave in the world. However, there are many more caverns filled with prehistoric art in the region. I’ll take you to visit the Grotte de Rouffignac, “the cave of 1000 mammoths” as well.
In this caves you can still see the original art, Unlike Lascaux, where the original cave is no longer open to the public.
