Abri Pataud

Historic Site in Les Eyzies-de-Tayac-Sireuil

About 250m north of the Musée National de Préhistoire, this Cro-Magnon abri (shelter) was inhabited over a period of 15,000 years starting some 37,000 years ago and now displays bones and other excavated artefacts. The ibex carved into the ceiling dates from about 19,000 BC. Admission includes a one-hour guided tour (some in English).
