Vila Nova de Foz Côa - Castelo Melhor

Chronology: Late Prehistory - Iron Age - Modern

Site located in the upper basin of Piçarral creek (a Côa right bank subsidiary), near to the highest levels of the plateau. Seven engraved panels have been found. Rock 1 presents one of the most evocative compositions of engraved schematic art in the region, probably dating from the III millennium BC. Among the pecked motifs in rock 1, the so-called 'bucrânios', which correspond to very schematic human figures featuring what is generally interpreted as horned helmets, stand out. From the same period, the serpentiform in rock 7 should also be mentioned. Moreover, motifs from the Iron Age and Modern times have been identified.
