  • After the visits of Font de Gaume and Combarelles, Cap Blanc cover is a little less sensational as the guide has not really managed to share the interest of this site (under the pretext of not interpreting we don't have) learned great thing about these sculptures and the young woman of Cap Blanc,...). Too bad! Worth a visit if you have time, but not essential.

  • Moving to imagine our ancestors in full creation of this little gem. The guide provides many important and additional details to the small museum which we go through before this tour. To see!

  • Couple with 2 children (8 years and 2 years) prehistory lovers will appreciate the work of sculpture to Cap Blanc. Very interesting guide.
