At Dawn of Mankind

The oldest masterpiece of Humanity

A lifetime experience to the roots of Art.

In the heart of ARDECHE, one of the most rural part of France, you will enjoy a scenic route that will take you to the Pont d’Arc site.

Facing the lion’s panel in the CHAUVET CAVE, one of the greatest masterpiece of art painted 36 000 years ago, twice as old as Lascaux, is something that may change your certitudes. It will for sure change your ideas about art and about prehistoric times. The quality of the guiding, the incredible talent of the people who created such wonders, the quality of the reproduction and of the museum attached, the beauty of the site, everything works to provide the best experience.

The breathtaking ARDECHE CANYON, with its famous PONT D’ARC landmark, didn’t change much through thousands of years. Along the scenic route several stops on blaconies will offer splendid perspectives.
