You must have visited a lot of caves, but La Grotte du Pech Merle is a walking dream and one of the most striking cave art sites, still open to the public. It is a large cave, with over two kilometers of underground tunnels and caverns. The cave was opened to the public in 1926. The prehistoric paintings in this cave are spectacular. The most well-known panel depicts two black horses painted back to back, with a series of black dots that cover and surround the animals’ bodies. You can take a guided tour, where you are shown not only the magnificent paintings but also the geological features of the cave itself. All the stages of its formation, which lasted several million years, are still visible. If you want to experience the blend of natural beauty with prehistoric works, then this cave is a must visit. It is a true memory of earth.
