The Cavillon cave of the Balzi Rossi is a charming place of rare beauty, and also a major prehistoric site in Europe; Cro-Magnon burials from 24,000 B.C.E. and female figurines known as “Venuses” were discovered here.
Located in Grimaldi, near Menton and Ventimiglia, the caves are found at the base of a cliff that faces the Roman old Via Iulia Augusta on the Mediterranean shore at French-Italian border. The place and its museum is open to visitors.
