#5 of 16 in Things to do in Les Eyzies-de-Tayac-Sireuil
Les Combarelles, a series of caves formerly inhabited by Cro-Magnon people approximately 13,000-11,000 years ago, holds more than 600 prehistoric engravings of animals and symbols. Around the turn of last century, the galleries in the caves played a crucial role in the re-evaluation of the mental and technical capabilities of prehistoric humans. Formed by an underground river, the cave extends approximately 300 m (980 ft) long with an average width of 1 m (3.3 ft). It's open to the public, but the site only allows six people in at a time.

    Book in advance. Limited number of tickets per day! Over 800 engravings featuring horses, bison, aurochs, lions, reindeer and more. These are from about 17,000 BC. BOOK IN ADVANCE, or be there before ...  more »

    Great guide, great tour groype of 6. Perfect to enjoy the delicacy of old engraving work of 15000ans. Awesome and amazing at the same time.

    Far from prehistoric hypermarkets that allow many to learn about prehistory, there are little treasures such as combarelle. Thank you visits and show what the eye can barely see.
