Summary

Created by our ancestors around 35-10,000 years ago, at a time when Europe lay in the grip of an Ice Age, cave art provides one of the most direct connections possible with our distant past. The astonishing feature of rock art is that, preserved by the temperature of their environment, these ancient images have remained both intact and in situ for millennia.

Tour highlights:

  • Visit the area’s key sites of prehistoric cave art, from Niaux to Mas d’Azil
  • Follow in the footsteps of the artists who created these early masterpieces
  • Gain fascinating insights into both the creation of cave art along with the lives of those who produced it
