    Anothe day trip from Bergerac
    In this park you will find reconstructions of prehistoric man's life in the actual places he lived. You go though caves and underground passages which were used as refuges from the prehistoric times. Then right on the cliff you come to the dwellings which were still occupied at the start of 20th century.
    Great day out for all the family.
