Gargas Prehistoric Caves Recommended Recommended : Michelin's recommendations

These caves covering two floors contain over 200 enigmatic prints of hands with incomplete, possible mutilated phalanxes. These paintings, made with ''stencils'' (negative hands), could be tied to a ritual of magic or initiation. Note also the drawings of animals, as well as the fine paintings and concretions.
