L'Aven d'Orgnac Grand Site de France

It's a story that begins a hundred million years ago, stretching from the formation of the limestone rock right up until the discovery of the Aven d'Orgnac, in 1935, which now allows visitors to admire the gigantic underground chambers and their majestic crystal formations. It's a human story too, from the very first fire-lit tales and the thousands of flint blades that were sharpened here, more than 350,000 years ago, to the continuing educational work at the Cité de la Préhistoire.

Come learn a little and dream a lot, surrounded by birdsong and the chanting of the cicadas...
