Prehistoric shelters of Laugerie Basse

The cliff to go back in time
Laugerie is at the foot of a cliff, dominating the Vézère Valley and its incredible landscape - a perfect setting for humans to live. The rockshelters of Laugerie Basse have been occupied since the Magdalenian era and tools and decorated objects were found here. In this unique prehistoric site, a few yards from the Grand Roc cave, you can dicover why and how since prehistoric times, men lived under these shelters, with the help of a tablet and a 3D Film.
