This smaller version of Lascaux is well worth visiting, It does not have the volume of artwork present in its more famous sibling, however, the fact you actually get to see the original artwork made by our prehistoric ancestors, gives a frisson that is worth every penny spent. It is cool underground, so make sure you take some warm clothing, (which may seem excessive if you are in 38C heat as we were that day!) The tour is obligatory and guided, and in high season you will have to book in advance. Starting times are not always what they say they are, we were due to start at 4.00 pm and didn't enter the caves until 5.00 pm!
