  • This is one of the must see places in your prehistoric circuit in the region. One of those places where you can still access the real thing. You need to reserve as space is limited. Here is the number...  more »
  • We visited this shelter with children. The tour is exciting by the knowledge of the guide-knowledge updated by past and current studies. We had a great time even if the visit is only in one room. To do!

  • Having drunk a lot of prehistoric sites I was a bit skeptical. With an exciting guide could understand the specificity of this site, learn a lot about habitat, techniques, rituals... Those are the comments that gave meaning to this frieze which has practically no equivalent in Europe. Bravo!
