Cave of Lascaux in Montignac
A technological feat was born in Montignac, a small town in the Dordogne in the Périgord Noir, only 20km from Sarlat la Canéda.
The Lascaux 4 cave or International Centre for Cave Art is a magnificent complex where you will find a complete replica of prehistoric paintings (the original cave is closed for the preservation of its 19000 year old frescoes).
By visiting Lascaux 4, you will also dive into the era of new technologies (3D cinema, virtual reality glasses…).
A digital tablet (visit companion) will be lent to you to guide you and to immortalize your visit (via an email).
In July and August, there are many visitors, so we advise you to book your tickets in advance.
Lascaux offers you a twin ticket with the visit of the Thot, an animal park with bison, wolves, goats… You can also participate in one of the workshops in the age of our prehistoric men like the parietal art, the excavation, the shooting with a propeller, the oil lamp… All this in Thonac, 800m from the campsite. You can get there on foot or by car. Don’t forget to book your workshops, which are particularly appreciated by your children.
Les EYZIES, city of prehistory
If you are a prehistory enthusiast, continue your journey to Les Eysies de Tayac to deepen your knowledge at the Pôle d’Interprétation de la Préhistoire (PIP). Other caves are located in Les Eysies such as the Font de Gaume cave which is an original decorated cave similar to Lascaux, the Cro Magnon shelter where the remains of Cro Magnon man were discovered. At the exit of the village, in the direction of Périgueux, you will discover the Grand Roc cave whose entrance is located several metres above the level of the Vézère. You will admire calcite concretions, stalagmites joining stalactites forming columns highlighted by the play of light. You will finish this visit by the Laugerie Basse.
