Grotte Chauvet

The cave of Pont d'Arc, named after its discoverer called Chauvet, sets in the depths of the limestone plateau of the Ardèche. It hides the oldest known wall paintings (dating from about 30.000 years before our era). It concerns about 1000 paintings that remained untouched until the discovery of the cave in 1994. In order to preserve the wall paintings, the caverne du Pont d’Arc was opened in 2015, an exact copy of the original cave.
