Lascaux Caves
A trip to the Black Perigord is not complete without a foray into the valley of the Vezere where you can check out the prehistoric cave paintings. Lascaux is the most important one to see, even if you only get to see the copy, called Lascaux II., if only to see the copy (Lascaux II), due to the poor condition of the originals. The replications are simply in the two main rooms (the Hall of the Bulls and the Painted Gallery), but it is so worth visiting. The visit is done in groups, and it is not possible to have it done in English (although at least our guide didn't dominate much) and, importantly, the tickets must be purchased in the village of Montignac, next to the tourist office, saving hours of the visit. It is very important not to forget to do this because you can't buy the tickets at the entrace. The visit begins with a couple of rooms museizadas to explain the history of Lascaux, its importance, the technique ... And then he goes to the replica of the cave. Unfortunately, the visiting groups (at least in summer) are very large, and is a bit tight, but still worth it.
