“Human beings have occupied these caves from the Middle Stone Age until the Middle Ages. They left many tools and everyday objects. But cave bears and lions were other less welcome guests… The tour shows exceptional remains of bears including several complete skeletons, the complete skull from one of the ten known cave lions in France. The wealth of the collections in the caves or in the archaeological museum and the unusual geology of the site place the Grottes d‘Azé among the greatest prehistoric caves. Enjoy your trip to the centre of the earth… ”
