Font-de-Gaume Grotto Recommended Recommended : Michelin's recommendations

This site is 120 m long and is the last prehistoric site with multicoloured figures still open to the public. Most of the paintings date back to the middle of the Magdalenian age, while some of the wall paintings belong to the same period as Lascaux (Ancient Magdalenian). Multicoloured bisons, horses, mammoths are displayed on the walls. The «tectiforms» (roof shaped signs) are similar to the ones at Bernifal, Combarelles or Rouffignac.
