This dazzling collection of ancient petroglyphs isn’t well known outside of France. Its remote location and the lack of information about the site in any language other than French conspire to keep this remarkable place something of a secret.
An estimated 38,000 to 50,000 carvings are spread across two sites on the slopes of Mount Bego within Mercantour National Park in southern France: the Vallée des Merveilles, translating to “Valley of Wonders,” and the less-visited Val de Fontanalba.
