Visit Le Moustier
Le Moustier is 10 km north east of Les Eyzies.
Le Moustier is a small village whose claim to fame comes from having two pre-historic shelters. In one of these a skeleton of a neanderthal type man was discovered. The skeleton was sold to the Museum of Berlin.
There is not much to see in the two shelters, especially when compared to the wealth of prehistoric paintings and rock sculptures in caves all around Les Eyzies but for dedicated enthusiasts visits are possible and are organised by the 'Grotte de Font de Gaume'.

In the village of Le Moustier there is a small roman church and a small museum with a collection of pre-historic fossils.
