Description

Unique prehistoric engravings. Nestling in the hollow of a cliff in a green and pleasant setting worthy of a picture postcard, you will find the “Grotte du Sorcier” – Sorcerer’s Cave, decorated by artists from the Magdalenian period.

These men engraved animals on the cave walls – but above all and very rare in prehistoric art – they depicted the human form- which has come to be known as the famous” Sorcier” - Sorcerer – a figure with large genitals.

It is reputed among historians to be one of the most beautiful engravings in Europe.

The visit concludes with the Prehistoric and Paleontology gallery.
