09 - Foz do Côa

Vila Nova de Foz Côa - Vila Nova de Foz Côa

Chronology: Upper Paleolithic - Iron Age - Modern

The left bank slope that dominates the mouth of the Côa keeps the highest concentration of identified rock art outcrops in the whole region - a total of 195 panels. Due to the quality and quantity of motifs from the final stage of the Upper Paleolithic and from the Iron Age, this site must be regarded as the centre of the symbolic territories of both periods. The finding of two stones with Upper Paleolithic engravings in a recently built wall suggests some destruction of engraved outcrops throughout the ages.
