Amazing Lascaux Cave Complex

The reason why the Lascaux cave complex existed for so long is precisely due to the natural ventilation and perfect temperature control that did not allow the breeding of microorganisms and fungi. When the crowds of tourists started to come to this place, a delicate balance has been broken, and in the mid-fifties the most important paleontological site began to slowly collapse under the influence of mold and bacteria. Today the cave is closed for the general public, it is replaced with a copy - the cave Lascaux II, located two hundred meters from its original. There is also an opportunity to visit the legendary cave virtually by going to a special site in the Internet.
