36 - Ribeira da Volta

Vila Nova de Foz Côa - Chãs

Chronology: Upper Paleolithic - Iron Age - Modern

Ribeira da Volta is a large stream, which flows into the left bank of the Côa immediately upstream of the Quinta da Barca site. On a slope over one of its small tributaries there is a group of 10 engraved rocks, with a few paleolithic and modern motifs, but mostly with Iron Age incisions. In rocks 1 and 3, despite the absence of human representations, the set of the engravings is impressive, standing out the group of animals on rock 1 and the large number of representations of weapons in rock 3, mostly spears and some sickle-shaped knifes or swords.
