Lascaux and prehistory

Vézère Valley

The Vézère Valley or "Prehistoric Valley" includes some of the most interesting and famous prehistoric sites in the world within a radius of some fifty kilometres. Fifteen of these sites are listed as World Heritage with UNESCO. The 400,000 years of human occupation in the Vézère Valley make it one of the cradles of European civilisation.
The area's museums and archaeological deposits help enrich your discovery of our ancestors' lifestyle.
Caves and rock shelters were an ideal medium for prehistoric man's artistic expression, and this ancient artwork can be admired in a number of prehistoric sites along the valley.
