18 - Vale de Moinhos

Vila Nova de Foz Côa - Vila Nova de Foz Côa

Chronology: Upper Paleolithic - Iron Age - Modern

Long, deep and sinuous valley on the Côa's left bank, located between the upstream Rego da Vide and the downstream Moinhos de Cima rock art sites. Several rock art panels (44) are distributed along its slopes. Most are located on the mouth of the creek with the same name. Modern inscriptions and cross motifs, which seem to be associated with ancient mills, stand out. Besides Iron Age figures, the site possesses Upper Paleolithic engravings in the cluster located near to the creek's mouth (Rocks 1, 2 and 9, with multiple or single lined zoomorphic figures and a pecked horse) and those further up in the valley, near the edge of the plateau, namely the striped animals in rocks 30 and 31.
