An exceptional reconstruction
The replica of the prehistoric Cosquer cave welcomes visitors for an incredible journey back to prehistoric times to discover the Paleolithic cave paintings that were sunken in this cave located within the Calanques National Park.
Henri Cosquer, a professional diver, discovered the cave at a depth of 37 metres in the Calanques National Park in 1985. Armed with patience and perseverance, he made several dives to explore the gallery that leads to the cave, which was inhabited between 33,000 and 19,000 years BC. A very long period of frequentation of the cave that allowed him to benefit from more than 480 works painted or engraved on the rock.
