Vila Nova de Foz Côa - Muxagata

Chronology: Upper Paleolithic

This site is a fluvial terrace on the left bank of the Côa River in an area where the valley has a wide opening. The site lies midway between the sites of the Ribeira de Piscos, northward, and Ribeira das Cortes, southward. Recent excavations showed the existence of human occupation in the Upper Paleolithic and Late prehistory. At the north end of the terrace there’s a small group of outcrops along the river, and four rocks with incised engravings were identified. In all cases, these are just groups of traces, without a defined shape. Therefore, their chronological attribution is difficult to assign, but they’re likely to be Paleolithic engravings. As in the Fariseu site, it’s possible that there may be more engraved rocks buried in the terrace.
