Chauvet: The Dawn of Art is an unforgettable virtual reality adventure during the ten minutes of which you can explore the Chauvet Cave, which is considered a UNESCO World Heritage spot.

The Chauvet Cave which is located in Ardèche, France features the oldest human pieces of art ever known to the world. It was first discovered in 1994 and changed the understanding of human creativity. The Chauvet Cave contains thousands of untouched drawings that are closed there forever. That’s why the cave is closed to the public: to preserve the fragile and unique art that has survived for 36,000 years. In 2014, it was named a World Heritage Site by the United Nations Cultural Agency UNESCO. And although you cannot visit the Chauvet Cave, there is a copy of the cave available to the public. The Pont d’Arc Cave is a project created by Ardèche. The largest decorated cave on the planet was opened to the public in 2015 and features timeless works of art.
