The Pataud Shelter at Les Eyzies

Save to my Account

The Pataud shelter is located in the village of Les Eyzies, not far from the Musée National de la Préhistoire, 15m/49ft above the Vézère river on a cliff face which dominates the village.

Abri Pataud is the only prehistoric site in the Périgord which is also a museum containing bones and flints were discovered during excavation work. There are 14 layers of archeology and even the remains of a fireplace!

Don’t miss: While in the area be sure to visit the Musée National, the Abri de Cro-Magnon, the Abri du Poisson and the Grotte du Roc de Cazelle. If you need refreshments after all this the try the Café de la Mairie just below the Musée.
