Named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1979, Lascaux is one of the world's great galleries of Paleolithic art, a mysterious remnant that scientists still debate the meaning of. Although the actual cave has been closed to the public for more than 50 years, visiting Lascaux II—a near perfect replica—is an awe-inspiring experience that shouldn't be missed. Nearby, the Château de Losse puts a different spin on this area’s rich history.
