A VISIT TO LASCAUX 4


An indisputably essential addition to the "bucket-list" of any visitor to France is the International Centre for Cave Art or Lascaux 4 which opened at the end of 2016.  Meticulously accurate reproductions of the 17 000 year old cave paintings are housed in an ultra-modern building that has the shape and form of the cliffs and caves inhabited by our Cro-Magnon ancestors.  The huge glass windows and doors reflect the countryside and forests that must have been their hunting grounds teeming with the animals they immortalized on their cave walls.
