I enjoy visiting this place as it is great for people loving prehistory as it is one of the most beautiful artistic cave in the world. Even if it is not the real one, it is not important. A place to see!

This tour needs to be undertaken in your host language to fully absorb the cultural, spiritual, technical and sheer unparalleled beauty of OUR European ancestors.

Lascaux II is up the hill from the big Lascaux museum, so if you are driving be sure to keep driving all the way up the hill to the public parking lot. While the museum is striking, the site of Lascaux II is intimate, quiet,...More
