Not worth the money for a rock shelter with a few interpretation boards and an amateurish reconstruction of a prehistoric tent.

Such an important prehistoric site but there was minimal interpretive material present on site so we just looked and soaked in the location.

We paid a supplement for Laugerie when touring Grottes du Gran Roc. It actually proved to be our favorite part of the visit. The signage was excellent and it provided us with a much better understanding of the life of Cro-magnon. The site is stunning....More

In the Grotte du Roc there are fascinating examples of stalagtites and stalagmites and some beautiful examples of crystalline formations. The English guide (Elizabeth) gives an excellent description...More

The landscape of this prehistoric site, and especially the local guide giving all the informations about heating the water, and make the huts warm, also about hunting and la cuisine de la prehistoire, made the visit unforgettable!

A very typical french restaurant with limited menus but very friendly and welcoming. Disliked having to go to a separate building to use the toilets. Difficult access for the disabled.

I purchased a double ticket for the cave tour and the village exhibit. The caves for fine, but I was not interested in stalactites and stalagmites, which is all you see there. The village is an interesting diorama of how early humans could have lived,...More
