Cave paintings in Niaux near FoixCave Paintings in France around Foix

Today we talk about cave paintings in France near the city of Foix. So much history there, going all the way back to 15,000 years ago! And just to get warmed up, we begin with the famous tongue twister: “Il était une fois, dans la ville de Foix, un marchand de foie, qui vendait du foie dans la ville de Foix. Il se dit “Ma foi, c’est la première foi, et la dernière foi, que je vends du foie dans la ville de Foix.” Can you say it? Don’t worry, it’s not required for you to go visit Foix and the cave painting sites nearby. And unlike Lascaux, the actual cave in Niaux is open to the public and you visit with a flashlight! Enjoy the show and Happy New Year!
