1. Lascaux Caves – France
The Lascaux caves are a complex set of caves lined with prehistoric art dating back to the late Stone Age. The caves were closed to visitors in 1963 and in 1979, it was declared a World Heritage Site.
The reason visitors are no longer allowed inside is because of the outbreaks of fungus and bacteria that have plagued the caves making conditions unsafe. Today, only a couple of people are permitted to enter for a restricted time period to observe conditions inside.
The closest that you will be able to get to these caves is by visiting the replica created because of the conservation issues with the original.
