Rouffignac is one of the largest prehistoric caves in Europe. The remarkable construction of this system extends for almost 10 kilometres and offers huge corridors whose walls bristle with countless strangely shaped often red-coloured flint nodules and ceilings punctuated with wide natural domes. In 1956, 260 prehistoric drawings and engravings dating from 13,000 to 14,000 years ago were discovered. This bestiary where 160 mammoths hold pride of place also contains bison, horses, ibex and woolly rhinoceros. The guided tour on an electric train takes you through places where bears dug their lairs and shows you part of the cave with its wall paintings.
