  • Is is where the remains of a human 45000 years old, were found. We very well received by the archeologist who runs the museum. Well worth a visit. 
  • Our visit proved very interesting and rewarding. If you take the time to read, visit, watch the videos everything is exciting and very informative... A special mention for the demonstration of a fire (with demonstration of numbers of information related to the daily life of our ancestors) who very passionately teaches us is a very good teacher... Thanks for this good educational moment!
