Replica Cave

While in France, I happened to get a number of brochures for tourist caves. One of these brochures was about the Chauvet Cave, the cave with earliest known paintings from 30 000+ years ago. But, that cave is off limits to visitors, so they built a replica of the cave nearby!

The replica is called Caverne Pont d'Arc and is the largest cave replicate to date. Would be interesting to visit... even if not the real thing.
