Very dull sight, not much to see and you are done in about 10 minutes. You sit through a 3D tour that lasted longer than the experience itself.

Not worth the money for a rock shelter with a few interpretation boards and an amateurish reconstruction of a prehistoric tent.

The landscape of this prehistoric site, and especially the local guide giving all the informations about heating the water, and make the huts warm, also about hunting and la cuisine de la prehistoire, made the visit unforgettable!
