Lascaux II, Montignac
(2.5/5 based on 1,500+ reviews on the web)
Lascaux II features replicas of the famed Lascaux Cave's 17,000-year-old Paleolithic paintings, which are only 200 m (650 ft) away. Discovered in 1940 and opened to the public in 1948, the original cave attracted 1,200 visitors a day. By 1955, carbon dioxide and light had begun to damage the paintings. In 1963, the cave was shut down to preserve the art. The museum opened in 1983. Look for a replica of the cave's Great Hall of Bulls and the Painted Gallery. A visit to Lascaux II represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Montignac itinerary planner to plot your vacation.
