As I have worked as a custodian and guide of prehistoric cave art in two major sites in the Dordogne including Lascaux II , I have an indepth knowledge of this ancient and mysterious culture which I would love to share with you.
We will visit the brand new state of the art Lascaux IV.
Here there are 2 replicas of the chambers of the Lascaux cave containing beautiful copies of these world famous paintings. There is also an interactive museum.
I had the chance to see this site which opened on December 14th 2016 and was impressed by the quality of the reproductions and the sense of being in the real cave.
