- Grottoes and caves
A few kilometres from Namur, the Grottes de Goyet is considered one of the most prestigious archaeological sites in Europe.
Located in the hollow of a 90-hectare limestone massif, the Caves of Goyet bear witness to an exceptional past. Discovered on this site, amongst other things is the oldest dog skull in the world, the main Belgian prehistoric works of art and the grave of a 12-year-old child dating back to the recent Neolithic period.
An archaeologist interpreter-guide will help you discover and understand this intimate space, where both Neandertal and Cro-Magnon men lived using interactive technology which brings the past alive by touching, feeling, imagining the past. These interactive experiences and demonstrations make history come alive and make the site even more wondrous.
