Le Regourdou, Lascaux

#34 of 39 in Historic Sites in Dordogne
Historic Site Tourist Spot
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.

  • A site that has as origin a stubborn man who was convinced that the entry of the cave of Lascaux was in his field! Authentic and varied: prehistory, bear and local life in the last century. Possibility to eat (nibble) on the spot

  • An interesting visit that changes of the attractions to tourists such as Lascaux. Exciting tour with a passionate guide. Two children aged 5 and 10 delighted. Allows you to know more about the history of humans in the Select Committee

  • A lot of advertising for a supposedly exceptional site... He is actually of a hole, a collection of rocks, an amateur video on bears and bears in question, which can be seen from far away... A waste of time and money
