Grotte du Pech Merle
Grotte du Pech Merle Review
Discovered in 1922, the Grotte du Pech Merle displays 4,000 square feet of prehistoric drawings and carvings. Particularly known for its peculiar polka-dot horses, impressions of the human hand, and footprints, this is the most impressive "real-thing" prehistoric cave that is open to the public in France. The admission charge includes a 20-minute film, an hour-long tour, and a visit to the adjacent museum. Take a great bike ride here from St-Cirq-Lapopie or the SNCF bus from Cahors—getting off at Conduché (before St-Cirq) and walking the 7 km (4 miles) along D41. Alternately, you can just drive from Cahors, taking D653 for 7 km (4 miles) to the right turn by Vers. Tickets are at a premium, with a daily limit of 700 visitors, so for peak summer days book at least one week in advance.
