A replica of the Chauvet Cave in the Ardèche region of southern France will open to the public on April 25. The real cave, a UNESCO world heritage site, was discovered in 1994 and contains wall paintings over 20,000 years old.
Discovered by chance in 1940, the 20,000-year-old art in France's Lascaux cave is so fragile, visitors can't see it. The second replica of the valuable ancient treasures is opening to the public this week.
