The Vézère valley contains 147 prehistoric sites dating from the Palaeolithic and 25 decorated caves. It is particularly interesting from an ethnological and anthropological, as well as an aesthetic point of view because of its cave paintings, especially those of the Lascaux Cave, whose discovery in 1940 was of great importance for the history of prehistoric art.

I have never visited this French site – and probably never will, as I think they have closed it to tourists to protect the paintings. I did read that an exact copy has been made nearby – maybe that will qualify!
