Les Eyzies de Tayac Tourist Attractions
Les Eyzies, situated at the junction of the Beune with the Vézère, is a good base from which to visit the prehistoric sites of Périgord. In this area were found the first drawing of a mammoth and the 30,000-year-old skeleton of Cro-Magnon Man, named after the find-spot.
Within easy reach of Les Eyzies are the Grotte du Grand Roc, Cro-Magnon and several other caves and prehistoric sites.
Wonderfully preserved prehistoric drawings of animals (painted and engraved) can be seen in the Grottes des Eyzies, the Grotte des Combarelles, the Grotte de la Mouthe and above all in the Grotte de Font-de-Gaume.
