European Centre of Prehistory Interesting : Michelin's recommendations

The centre's main attraction is the life-size reproduction of the Caune de l'Arago, made with castings of the ceiling and walls of the original caves. Visitors are also treated to realistic slide shows, in addition to several short films depicting the cave's evolution, including hunters returning from a foray and the cave's transformation up until the present day. The reconstituted skeleton of Tautavel Man gives an idea of the stature of one of the oldest human species known to date outside Africa: upright and about 1.65m tall.
