Grotte de Font de Gaume
"These two caves, listed as World Heritage with UNESCO since 1979, are located on the outskirts of Les Eyzies in the direction of Sarlat. Font de Gaume, a prehistoric cave, is one of the most incredible Palaeolithic sites in the world still open to the public. It reveals more than two hundred painted or engraved representations of bison, horses, mammoths and reindeer, of which many are polychrome.
Grotte des Combarelles is a major site for the Magdalenian culture. Horses, bison, aurochs, lions, reindeer, and more: over 800 engravings and drawings of Quaternary Period fauna reveal themselves throughout the cave. Please note: for conservation reasons, the daily number of visitors is very limited. You may buy your ticket on-site the same day while spots remain available. You may reserve by email or telephone (limited quota).
