Le Regourdou serves as a museum, archeological dig site, and brown bear enclosure devoted to the Neanderthals who once inhabited the area. Discovered in the 1950s by property owner Roger Constant after a sinkhole formed, the site has become a treasure trove for archeologists. Here they reportedly discovered the oldest and most complete Neanderthal skeleton found in Europe, which dates back more than 90,000 years. They've also found a variety of tools and other artifacts, leading to a greater understanding of the early humans who lived here.

Thank you the couple from the North come who slept in a cave cottage;-)
Beautiful park, beautiful story and pleasantly narrated by a passionate Guide. The bears are great and what is even more beautiful is to see them a few centimetre from us. We will return with great pleasure! To see!
