15 - Vale de Cabrões

Vila Nova de Foz Côa - Vila Nova de Foz Côa

Chronology: Upper Paleolithic - Mesolithic - Iron Age - Modern

Steep and rocky valley on the Douro's left bank, located immediately upstream to Vale da Casa and downstream to Vermelhosa. Sixty one engraved outcrops are distributed along the valley's slopes. The site possesses Iron Age and Upper Paleolithic imagery. Among representations from the more ancient period, some of the most beautiful motifs in the Côa can be found here, namely in rocks 5 and 32. A deer motif in rock 1, probably of Epipaleolithic chronology, should also be mentioned since it suggests what some of the already identified settlement sites in the region show, the continuation of human occupation after the end of the Pleistocene.
