A prehistorical cave north of Saint-Cirq
North of the medieval village of Saint-Cirq-Lapopie, above the Lot, is the town of Cabrerets. It is famous for its proximity to the Pech-Merle cave. The cave, and its prehistoric paintings dating back more than 25,000 years, were discovered by local children in 1922. They opened to the public in 1926. Among its most famous paintings, we find that of the Punctuated Horses dated 29,000 years BP. The geological interest of the cave lies in its formation over several million years, which makes it a memory of the Earth.
