The Côa Park Foundation welcomes you to the Côa Valley Archaeological Park and Museum, an heritage of all humanity with much for everyone to discover!
Visit to the Museum
The rock art is distributed along two main fluvial axes, the Côa and Douro Rivers covering the Park an area belonging to the municipalities of Vila Nova de Foz Côa, Figueira de Castelo Rodrigo, Pinhel and Mêda.
More than 1200 engraved outcrops in about 80 different sites have been identified so far, mostly from Paleolithic times, but also from the Iron Age or historical periods.
The Côa Museum allows a first approach to vastness and interpretation complexities of the rock art in the Valley; it is also the center of activities carried out by the Foundation, either integrating regular programing on offer or the surprising nocturnal visit to Penascosa, the Educational Workshops, temporary exhibitions or, in specific dates, different commemorative events. In addition to these activities, several selected experiences are also available in collaboration with our partners.
It is possible to visit the Côa art before a lunch in the Quinta da Ervamoira estate or together with the Faia Brava natural reserve. Through other partnerships, it is also possible to profit from bathing resorts in the Hotel Termal de Longroiva, or to visit together, at reduced prices, the Côa Museum, the Archaeological Zone of Siega Verde (Ciudad Rodrigo, Spain), the Casa Grande de Freixo de Numão, the Serralves Foundation or the Douro Museum.
