Le Regourdou serves as a museum, archeological dig site, and brown bear enclosure devoted to the Neanderthals who once inhabited the area. Discovered in the 1950s by property owner Roger Constant after a sinkhole formed, the site has become a treasure trove for archeologists. Here they reportedly discovered the oldest and most complete Neanderthal skeleton found in Europe, which dates back more than 90,000 years. They've also found a variety of tools and other artifacts, leading to a greater understanding of the early humans who lived here. Planning Lascaux trip won't be overwhelming when you use Inspirock's itinerary maker.

Found by chance and we were not disappointed. Very friendly and welcoming guide we learned things and had a good time. A small downside for the surroundings of the site that are a little outdated as well as the pens of the bears but I wish them to develop more. Thank you the couple from the North come who slept in a cave cottage;-)
Beautiful park, beautiful story and pleasantly narrated by a passionate Guide. The bears are great and what is even more beautiful is to see them a few centimetre from us. We will return with great pleasure! To see!
