06 - Fariseu

Vila Nova de Foz Côa - Muxagata

Chronology: Upper Paleolithic - Iron Age

It is one of the central sites to the understanding of the chronology of the Côa Valley rock art. Nineteen engraved panels are distributed along this ancient fluvial beach located on the left bank of the Côa. Of these, 16 have Upper Paleolithic engravings and just one possesses Iron Age motifs. Excavation of rock 1 completely proved an Upper Paleolithic chronology for the most ancient art in the Côa, since some motifs were totally covered by layers dated to that period. Excavation also unearthed several tens of mobile art slabs, making Fariseu one of the most important Iberian Peninsula sites where such finds were made.
