Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2010, this is an outstanding example of Palaeolithic cave paintings. A site boasting a magnificent series of cave paintings that have remained intact thanks to their late discovery and remote location.

Today they are perfectly signposted and protected, and have been the object of intense study. Visitors are able to admire them and learn about the way of life of these prehistoric artists who have left us one of the finest examples of outdoor Palaeolithic art in Europe. The paintings also boast a magnificent setting, with 90 panels stretching out for a kilometre along the left bank of the river. A total of 645 drawings can be seen, featuring various figures on the schist rocks, mainly animals, geometric shapes and patterns.

The style of the paintings indicate that they were made between then BCE 22000 and BCE 11000. This is a site not to be missed due to its unequalled prehistoric value.
