Les Combarelles, Les Eyzies-de-Tayac-Sireuil

Les Combarelles, a series of caves formerly inhabited by Cro-Magnon people approximately 13,000-11,000 years ago, holds more than 600 prehistoric engravings of animals and symbols. Around the turn of last century, the galleries in the caves played a crucial role in the re-evaluation of the mental and technical capabilities of prehistoric humans. Formed by an underground river, the cave extends approximately 300 m (980 ft) long with an average width of 1 m (3.3 ft). It's open to the public, but the site only allows six people in at a time.
