Camping du ManoireCamping du Manoire

At just 20 km from Camping du Manoire you can visit the Lascaux cave, the "Versailles of prehistory".

Lascaux is one of the most important caves for the number and quality of its peleolithic artworks. The original cave, discovered in 1940,is closed for public. It is closely watches to preserve this site listed as World Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO.


To admire the chefs d'oeuvres of prehistory an identical reconstruction of the Lascaux site has been made (same paitings, same techniques, same pigments...) It is called Lascaux II.  Here you can admire prehistorical cave paintings and travel through the history of man.
