Lascaux cave

The Lascaux cave was discovered in 1940 by 4 teenagers. After the war, Lascaux was open to the public for many years until it closed in 1963.

The constant flow of visitors and the carbon dioxide and human breath were beginning to degrade the prehistoric paintings of the decorated cave.

Today the original Lascaux is closed. The cave is closely monitored to preserve this site listed as a World Heritage Site by theUNESCO.
