On the D704, Montignac was once a busy river port that sits on the banks of the Vezere river, its wooden balconies reflect peacefully across the waters. Although feared for its ferocious counts in the Middle Ages, Montignac rose to fame in 1940, when a pit was discovered by some local boys and their dog. What they found was the nonpareil masterpiece of prehistoric cave paintings. The name of course was Lascaux.
