  • A cave that looks like many other, no specificity? The number of people per visits is too high and we can't all suddenly take advantage of what the guide told us. The Museum is without interest.

  • Cave frozen since 4500 years, which gives us a testimony of the life of our ancestors. Graves are visible as well as traces of no children. I advise to visit the Museum before and watch the short film before going down to the cave, it helps in understanding.

  • Actually, the arrival on the scene is a little surprising, lost in the middle of nowhere. The first 76 steps down bode nice... On the contrary! The site is well preserved, the guide presents well the daily life of our ancestors in the caves and geological phenomena. A nice family walk.

  • Super !!!!!!!
  • "A" beautiful unique Cave of its kind! (9 euros entry anyway) The site has been classified Historical Monument. Nice presence of paintings and engravings from the Upper Paleolithic we observe an aurochs, a sheep and two bison in a pre mating scene. Remains dating from approximately 2700 years BC. Not accessible to people with disabilities

  • But little-known place that is well worth the visit. Extraordinary cave, expert guidance, explanations and constructive comments. Must be seen!

  • The guided tour is well-handled. It allows to better understand the life at the time. Good home. The Museum can wait, but nothing more.

  • Very interesting and beautiful. It's too bad that the guide is very mocking and especially with children who are not reassured.
