Les Eyzies-de-Tayac Off The Beaten Path: 6 reviews and 26 photos
The cave is 5 km aouth of town of Rouffignac (marked). It has been known for centuries and has extensive extensions chambers and galleries. The wall paintings and engravings were only discovered in 1956. They have been determined to be late Magdalenian (10,000BC) but a few are thought be much older, the earliest works in the area.. The tour is over 2 miles in length and is conducted in an open car electric train and is quite comfortable. Many animal types are seen. Most memorable to us was an engraved depiction of the wooly mammoth (one of the oldest works) and other later pachyderms.
