The Caverne du Pont d’Arc - The Chauvet Cave
Just metres from the famous Pont d’Arc, the natural stone arch that spans the river Ardeche, lies the Chauvet Cave. This conceals incredible cave paintings dating back 36,000 years and is a uniquely precious site of prehistory. To preserve the paintings, an identical replica has been created in stunning detail. Stay at a campsite nearby (there are a number to choose from) and you can easily visit to witness this remarkable legacy.
