61 - Vale d'Arcos

Torre de Moncorvo - Urros

Chronology: Upper Paleolithic - Late Prehistory

Located on the right bank of the Douro, upstream of the site of Ribeira das Fornas, this site, like others nearby, is a valley that begins in the quartzite outcrops at high altitude, and descends through schist terrains to the Douro. Two outcrops with rock art are currently known, both in the upper valley. Rock 1 is an schist outcrop, located just below the transition to quartzite, and presents a single Paleolithic motif, maybe a fish, incised and striped. The second is a large quartzite rock shelter, having several panels with Late Prehistory schematic painted motifs. These are very faded and are difficult to interpret, some human figures being discernible.
