  • One of the decorated caves of the Lot, almost as rich as the Dordogne department nearby. There are few depictions, but they fit into the context of the Palaeolithic civilisations who attended l Quercy there is over 20,000 years

  • Small well guarded underground entrance. Home not top but relaxes the guide throughout the tour. Scenic cave with concretions and authentic murals. Caring Guide and very explicit explanations. Duration of about 45 minutes.

  • The cave is interesting however the tour is only done in french, which you aren't told until you have paid and are inside.  more »

  • Small cavity without interest, 3 stars for the guide who struggles to make the interesting cave.

  • Tuesday, July 18, 2017 visit around noon. Intimate and exciting visit. The guide helped me to feel privileged to contemplate the traces left thousands of years ago. I was very moved to see our ancestor... artistic and technical capacity and the mystery of their meaning. I had never been touched in this way with a visit to a cave (and I did several in France as abroad). It is small but it's been a real revelation for me.

  • Visit exciting, intimate without artifice, a real cave that has kept its original character. It's on a human scale, paintings are beautiful even if there are few, there is even a very rare, if you're interested in prehistory is exciting. The magic because the cave is in the background of a garden and we don't expect to discover, there is the smell, cold, moisture, isn't in a facsimile. The guide explains really well designs and if we focus a little, we can imagine 25000 years ago. Even my 6 year old son found it "great". The morning if it's not too crowded it's magic. Thanks to the guide and thanks for the welcome.
