We are here in the epicentre of the Vézère valley, a valley with 147 sites and 25 decorated caves, classified by Unesco for the exceptional character of all these sites from the ethnological, anthropological and aesthetic point of view. The communes included in this classification are Les Eyzies-de-Tayac, Tursac, Montignac-Lascaux, Saint-Léon-sur-Vézère, Marquay, Manaurie-Rouffignac, Saint-Cirq-du-Bugue. The commune of Les Eyzies-de-Tayac-Sireuil is in a way the world capital of prehistory. It is here that the Cro-Magnon man was discovered and that one finds Font de Gaume, the last decorated cave still open to the public. The village is dominated by the statue of a Cro-Magnon revised by the artist Dardé and lives between its golden cliffs and the water of the Vézère. The nearby village of Tayac, attached to Les Eyzies, has a splendid 12th century fortified church. The portal is a surprising mixture of Gallo-Roman and Oriental. The surrounding area is characterized by an abundance of caves and rocks. The National Museum of Prehistory is an ideal first stop, which gives the desire to "dig" into the subject. The municipality is twinned with Puente Viesgo in Spain, which also has decorated caves.
