  • It's small (well!). It takes a little imagination to see the paintings rock, inconspicuous and too far. A guide not top, comment botched, unintelligible and stale jokes. A good audio guide would have been preferable... And the worst, be there with 2 school groups...

  • really deserves to stop during your visit in this beautiful area. D'Arcy on cure can also be a wonderful step

  • Very interesting site, however it is a pity to have a guide also unfriendly, almost aggressive, reciting his lines without any conviction and diction did not understand everything...

  • Amazing sense of history
  • Rather nice, one of the private caves with drawings, not such a great big cave, there should be no photos taken regarding private property

  • This site beneath its air desues, a prehistoric parietal treasure. No reproduction here, you will discover the cave as Neanderthal and these are his drawings that you can admire! Before Chambers was the oldest inscriptions in the world... It's worth the trip!
