Everyone wants to see the prehistoric paintings and engravings in the caves of Font de Gaume and Les Combarelles. And with good reason. It is a must for lovers of prehistoric, painted caves. It is not a copy like Lascaux.

An impressive trail is passed through the painted caves, knowing that our ancestors, 18,000 years ago, have traveled the same route. This cave has something magical. In addition to the high demand, access to these two caves for nature conservation reasons is severely limited (only 78 cards / visitors per day). Since the beginning of 2018 it is no longer possible to buy tickets for Font de Gaume or Les Combarelles in advance.
