Tourism in Tautavel

Visit the Tautavel region in the Pyrénées-Orientales.

Tautavel is a small village that smells like the south of France, in the shade of the plane trees in a café terrace, the song of the cicadas sets the atmosphere.

The museum of prehistory

Unmissable visit to the region. The museum of prehistory is a pleasant moment of discovery. You will see a reproduction of the Caune de l'Arago cave and the results of the excavations. As well as the main piece, the famous skull of the man from Tautavel, named Arago 21.

This is the oldest human skull found in France, dating back 450,000 years. It was discovered by Henry and Marie-Antoinette de Lumley in 1971.

Tautavel Man is a Homo Heidelbergensis whose features resemble early Europeans.
