To think the drawings, sculptures and painting in these caves are over 20,000 years old is something else. Great guides, informative and educational. Has to be seen.

Usually these tickets are gone pretty early in the day, as the quantity is very limited. This is done in order to protect the conditions of the cave, so it's a very good reason. Out of luck, we managed to get tickets at 11 for...More
