Pataud cave shelter

A visit to this excavation site that is open to the public reveals the successive phases in the cave's occupation. A museum has been set up in the Abri Pataud (Pataud Shelter), exhibiting objects found during the digs. The highlight is a bas-relief of an ibex that once adorned the ceiling. An informative presentation (including pictures and models) provides insight into the thought processes of prehistoric people.
