One of the most famous decorated prehistoric caves in Europe still open to the public. Though its vast opening (55 metres high) which opens at an altitude of 678 metres, the Niaux cave extends for more than 2 kilometres. The guided tour of the Salon Noir, 800 metres from the entrance, will reveal to you more than 70 exceptional prehistoric paintings. In addition, visit the Prehistoric Park discovery centre, with among other things a facsimile of the cave and the Clastres system as it would have looked 13,000 years ago. To celebrate the centenary of the discovery of the paintings 1906-2006, the Clastres system will be exceptionally open to the public by advance booking.
