Caverne de Bara Bahau - Le Sanctuaire de l'Ours

Located in Le Bugue at an altitude of 600m, Bara Bahau is a geologic and prehistoric cave listed as a historical monument. It features a wide, deep cave of more than 100m in length edged by marine strata and eccentric stalactites. At the very back of this cave, hidden behind giant boulders, you'll see engravings dating from the Middle Magdalenian. A number of cave bear claw marks show that such animals occupied this cave well before prehistoric Cro-Magnon man. The gouges are mingled with vast, authentic engravings representing animals such as horses, bears and aurochs, as well as enigmatic symbols of hands and phalli, among more. This fantastic past surges out of the darkness to reveal an impressive relief.
