Our ancestors, and in particular Homo habilis, known for his aptitude in manufacturing tools, set the tone for the area's inventive resourcefulness. The valley's folk museums are authentic ways to conserve and perpetuate local memory. These are treasure chests for the territory's material heritage (tools, housing, etc.) and immaterial heritage (expertise, occupations, etc).
Cro-Magnon pioneered the area's artistic creativity. The Vézère Valley is truly an inspiring destination abounding in artistic talent. Feel free to be curious: the valley's craftsmen will be delighted to welcome you into their workshops where they showcase their expertise.
