Enjoy the rock paintings:


There is a huge variety of rock paintings present in the Côa Valley Archaeological Park, which is considered one of the most important preservers of outdoor rock art in the world.

In this park, you can see thousands of rock engravings from the Paleolithic period to the Bronze Age, depicting animals such as horses and goats.

The valley was discovered in 1994 while work was underway to build a dam on the river. With this discovery, it was decided to create the Archaeological Park to protect and preserve the wonderful historical heritage uncovered.

The park offers guided tours of archaeological sites such as Ribeira de Piscos and Canada do Inferno, allowing visitors to explore and appreciate the rock art that is present in this region.
