The Grotte de la Bigourdane is a prehistoric decorated cave located in the Lot department, on the territory of the commune of Saint-Géry.

The engravings are grouped into 2 distinct panels:

  • Panel 1 is located 1 m above the ground. It includes incomplete unidentified traces, and 2 head-spade deer that have been identified as an adult reindeer and a very young reindeer,
  • Panel 2 is located 2.20 m above the ground, a reindeer is engraved on it.

These engravings were attributed to the Magdalenian III-IV and were brought closer to the cave of Sainte-Eulalie.
