Prestigious discoveries (Cro Magnon, Font de Gaume, Combarelles), the wider variety of classified sites in France, and the International Prehistory museum made the international reputation of this pretty village welcoming nearly one million visitors each year.
Nestled near the pretty town of Montignac, is it useful to present the Lascaux caves, the most famous Paleolithic cave by the number, the aesthetic quality and the conservation status of its paintings and old prints nearly 18,000 years.
Nearly two million travelers from around the world flock there for its medieval/early renaissance town center among the best preserved in the world, consisting of a maze of picturesque narrow streets and alleys, of shaded squares, lined with rich homes with slate roofs.
Miraculously preserved, last witness of a bygone era, the city regularly provides the setting for historical films.
Housed in a former church redesigned by famous architect Jean Nouvel, its market and its gastronomy will complete an unforgettable visit.
