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.
