Lascaux II Visit and the Art of the Caves

Lascaux II

Your day will begin with breakfast at the hotel.

Today is a trip back in history…literally! Some 15,000 years B.C. unknown painters created breath taking cave paintings of which the most extraordinary examples are found in the Dordogne area.

During this day, you will visit the town of Les Eyzies and follow your guide on a commented visit of the National Prehistory Museum.

The day continues to Rouffignac Cave that actually has authentic engravings dating back to the late Magdalenian period (17,000-12,000 years ago).

The final visit is to Lascaux IV, the International Center for Cave Art. This is a holistic museum and educational experience as well as an interpretation center featuring state-of-the-art experiential storytelling technology paired with a facsimile of the caves.  Lascaux IV offers visitors an opportunity to discover the caves in a unique way that reveals a sense of wonder and mystery, as if they, too, were the first group of adventurers to stumble upon the cave paintings. (First discovered in 1940,  the public cave visits to the original Lascaux were stopped in 1963 because of the damage that human breath was doing to the paintings.)

Overnight in Sarlat.
