Lascaux IV

Highly recommended
Here we have the "Sistine Chapel of Prehistory", a work of art in its own right. Lascaux IV, which opened in 2016, is a technological and scientific feat replicating the cave to scale. Visitors can roam through the half-light and see the 2 500 animal figures that were painted or engraved on the walls. The effect is truly stunning. Prolong the experience in the museums, which allow you to observe and reflect upon the meaning of this 20 000 year-old work of art.
