Lascaux Things to Do: 3 reviews and 3 photos
Once in the Cave, we were in a large cavern known as the "Hall of the Bulls." It is about 20 metres long, and between 5.5 and 7.5 metres wide.
In here, we were told to try and find the Bulls. Painted in Palaeolithic art form, there were 130 figures, including animals and geometric signs.
Our guide described to us how clever they were painting. They didn't just paint "willy nilly," they actually chose the best rocks to paint the figure, so the Bull or whatever, would come out more life-like!
We were led through the different named sections of the Cave and at each, we stopped and were given information on it.
What I suggest, as I haven't photo's, and you won't either if you go, is to have a look and a read at the excellent website, it will fill you in on everything.
