  • A visit to Abri Pataud can provide an essential overview of the prehistorical shelters of the region. Our guide was exceptional as both an archeologist and teacher.

  • Very interesting, should imagine very busy in peak season
  • This is an archeological dig site right in the middle of Les Eyzies. First hand experience of seeing how potential sites are systematically excavated and studied. And here they struck a goldmine! In 15 layers, there is 35000 years of human prehistory. Small but a must visit.
