37 - Rego da Vide

Vila Nova de Foz Côa - Vila Nova de Foz Côa

Chronology: Upper Paleolithic - Modern

TThis site is located downstream to Canada do Inferno, on the same shore. Nine engraved panels were identified concentrated on the mouth of the creek named Rego da Vide. Three more panels of Modern chronology are located on the upper part of the overhanging slope. Only 4 panels have motifs dating to the Upper Paleolithic - 3 with horse motifs and a fourth one with a horse's head, an aurochs and a splendid male ibex, in which representation of volume was achieved through the concentration of pecked incisions in certain areas of the body. Besides these panels, five other have motifs engraved in the XX century that constitute the most original representations of the Côa's last engraving cycle. Among others motifs, fish, boats, trains, birds, religious figures and anthropomorphic solar and lunar representations can be found in these modern panels.
