Covacha del Portillon
Covacha of Potillon is a small quartzite cave; inside this hovel are various schematic motifs such as anthropomorphic, anchor shaped, cruciform, bars, pallets, etc., all of them in red and orange colors.
This den is elongated and higher in the center than at the edges. Paintings are placed in the inner Western wall and we have seen painted elements as points and bars. Chronologically it is difficult to indicate a specific date for its origin, but apparently its date is within the Chalcolithic or Bronze Age.
