    1. The would be Chauvet Cave. The French learnt a hard lesson from Lascaux.The paintings are being destroyed by molds and fungi, introduced by all the visitors. Entry into the real Chauvet Cave is strictly controlled, only super scientists may enter, and only for very brief periods. So they laser scanned the original and constructed a faux cave next door. It just very recently opened.
