Tautavel
The Essential
In the foothills of the Pyrenees, Tautavel represents the cradle of prehistory and has even given its name to the Tautavel Man, a hunter who lived here some 450,000 years ago. Scientists were able to recreate the appearance of one of our most distant ancestors from the remains of human skulls found in 1971 and 1979 near the prehistoric caune (cave) of Arago.
