The valley of the river Vézère is simply the country of mankind. In this valley the archaeological digs go back to ancient history. In the caves and grotto's you can gaze on drawings dating back to 35,000 years before our times. However it's the paintings of the Magdalenian era that we find the most fascinating. Bison, mammoth, reindeer, horses, wolves, elks, and rhinoceros, the list is long.
