About fifteen feet deep and about fifty feet long, the site has not been fully excavated. It actually consists of two shelters. The excavations conducted during the 1860s by Édouard Lartet have given no accurate record of the stratigraphy of the site. Among the 600 objects found, there are several known Magdalenian works, including a statuette of a woman called "Vénus impudique" discovered by the Marquis de Vibraye to 1864 and an engraved antler called "Femme au renne."
