the great "Paleolithic sanctuary"

The Chauvet cave, located in the south of France, is considered "the first masterpiece of humanity", since inside are some of the oldest known and best preserved cave paintings.

This important Paleolithic sanctuary was discovered in 1994, and ten years later (in 2014) it was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

Now, thanks to the Internet (and the work carried out by the French Ministry of Culture) it is possible to admire the beauty of this place without leaving home, in a virtual tour that takes us on a journey 36,500 years ago.

Visit the original cave

Through this virtual visit we can discover the original cave, room after room. And we say original cave because in 2015 a copy or reproduction of the Chauvet Cave was inaugurated (in the small town of Vallon-Pont-d'Arc, a short kilometer from the archaeological site).

The tour has four sections, and it's great to feel that you can move freely, move away or get closer and click on the different ones that contain explanations about the art or the nature of the cave itself.

I can't think of a better way to end 2020 than watching the chimes on Twitch with Ibai

As if that were not enough, on the web we can also find a video in which you can relive the emotion of those who found the cave in 1994, the difficulty of the work to access it and how impressed they were when they discovered the cave paintings.
