Le Regourdou, Lascaux
(2.8/5 based on 35+ reviews on the web)
Le Regourdou serves as a museum, archeological dig site, and brown bear enclosure devoted to the Neanderthals who once inhabited the area. Discovered in the 1950s by property owner Roger Constant after a sinkhole formed, the site has become a treasure trove for archeologists. Here they reportedly discovered the oldest and most complete Neanderthal skeleton found in Europe, which dates back more than 90,000 years. They've also found a variety of tools and other artifacts, leading to a greater understanding of the early humans who lived here.

  • I liked this place, history and the determination of this man Roger Constant. I did find the unfortunate bear as some may say, they are very responsive to the voice of the guide, which is very nice and listen to our questions. It's on it's not a great animal parks, I think that there is a lack of means and that's why I recommend visiting is place for the helped invest.

  • Hi all. We did enjoy our children think they see more pets. The meaning of the visit focuses on the work of a man who made discoveries while digging ds his garden. See for the history of the character but bears go your way.
