A few parts of the replica of the Chauvet Cave were presented to the press Wednesday, December 17, 2014. On the site, located in Vallon-Pont d'Arc (Ardeche), officials and project managers have guided visitors through site, and unveiled one of the iconic elements of the replica: the “Lion Panel”.
The project aims to restore some of the original cave, discovered in 1994. The Freyssinet teams have been working there since September 2013.
The end of this extraordinary construction is scheduled for March 2015, with an opening to the public in late April 2015.
