Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1979, the Font-de-Game cave is one of the most beautiful Palaeolithic shrines in the world. Famous for its polychrome paintings, but also its engravings, it brings together animal figurations and many «signs» dated about 14 000 years. It is one of the last caves decorated with polychrome paintings open to the public.
