First Visitors inside the Chauvet Cave Replica
A replica of the Chauvet Cave in the Ardèche region of southern France opens 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. This replica was built using computer models and 6000 digital photos, taking around 30 months to complete at a staggering cost of 55 million euros.
