Cro-Magnon rock shelter

It was in this Cro-Magnon rock shelter that the first remains of Homo Sapiens, dating back 35 000 years, were discovered. In addition to tools and pendants, five men's skeletons and one of a child were also unearthed. An exhibition combining a holographic film and immersive displays provide everything you need to know about Cro-Magnon man, while at the same time deconstructing received ideas on the subject. From the upper shelter enjoy a pleasant view of the Dordogne valley and its numerous prehistoric sites.
