Le Caverne du Pont d’Arc
So that visitors can admire this extraordinary collection of paintings, drawings and engravings, the largest replica decorated cave in the world has been created situated above Vallon-Pont-d’Arc, in the heart of an exceptional natural site.
Two areas to visit: the Cavern, the Aurignacian Gallery
Visiting the Cavern recreates the magic and conditions of the original cave. Following a route along a walkway with 10 observation stops, amidst the stalagmites and stalactites, the sublime drawings of animals by our Aurignacian ancestors emerge from the dark. The cool, damp atmosphere faithfully recreates the sounds and smells of the cave, offering a fully immersive experience.
Then to the explanation… In an interactive and enjoyable scenography, the Aurignacian Galery gives you a better understanding of our ancestors’ culture, cave art techniques, and the animals which inspired them in the past.
