Vila Nova de Foz Côa - Vila Nova de Foz Côa

Chronology: Upper Paleolithic - Late Prehistory

Site located on the Côa's left bank, between Vale de Figueira and Canada do Inferno rock art sites. Only two rocks are known. Rock 1, which is located on the right bank of Vale de Videiro creek, close to its mouth, possesses schematic painted motifs of Late Prehistory chronology. Rock 2 is located on the Côa and is partially submerged. It presents an animal figure, of Upper Paleolithic chronology, with hybrid characteristics - deer body, aurochs horns and ibex tail - a recurrent situation within the wider context of European Pleistocene art.
