Chronology: Upper Paleolithic - Late Prehistory - Modern

Impressive canyon located in granite terrains, where 18 rock art panels have been found. Contrary to the other Côa Valley rock art sites, painted prehistoric motifs are predominant over engraved ones. Seven of the known panels have some of the best examples of Late Prehistory painted schematic art in the Côa. Some of those schematic figures superimpose Upper Paleolithic aurochsen that, in turn, were both pecked and painted - the only instance where such a phenomenon occurs in the Côa Valley rock art. Another aurochs was engraved under a shelter where vestiges of a prehistoric occupation were found. The remaining panels have modern engravings associated with mills.
