46 - Quinta das Tulhas

Vila Nova de Foz Côa - Castelo Melhor

Chronology: Upper Paleolithic - Iron Age - Modern

Slope on the right bank of the Côa next to its mouth and opposite to the Foz do Côa rock art site. To the contrary of what happens in Foz do Côa, the rock art in this site is mostly located near the river, being the majority presently submerged. Therefore, only 17 emerged panels are known, of which 2 are partially submerged. The identified engravings (of Upper Paleolithic, Iron Age and Modern chronology) were accomplished resorting to the incision technique. The large group of Upper Paleolithic stags in rock 5 (a rare occurrence in the Côa art) and, especially, the ensemble of Iron Age engravings in rocks 2 and 6 are the most interesting features of the site.
