38 - Ribeira do Arroio

Torre de Moncorvo - Açoreira

Chronology: Upper Paleolithic - Late Prehistory - Modern

Ribeira do Arroio is a stream with a long and deep valley, and flows into the right bank of the river Douro, near the Pocinho dam. In a very sinuous stretch near the mouth there are three engraved rocks. Rock 1 has few Palaeolithic incised figures, highlighting two multiple trace fish. In front, on the opposite shore, rock 2 has a large panel with several pecked modern motifs, with inscriptions, cruciforms, an animal, horseshoe motifs, among others, associated with dates from 1699. Finally, rock 3 is a horizontal bench,of blue schist, on the bank of the stream, highly polished by the water, and presenting a single prehistoric pecked circle, extremely worn out, the first motif of this type that appears in the region.
