In northeast Portugal, amid imposing mountains, you’ll find the banks of the river Côa. A tributary of the Douro, the Côa valley contains 25,000 years of prehistoric art, a legacy of man’s spiritual past which UNESCO has classified a World Heritage site. The Côa valley, now an archaeological park, is an open-air art gallery seventeen kilometres long showing the creativity of our ancestors, from the Upper Palaeolithic Age to the Iron Age. There has also been a modern contribution - figures painted in more recent years by a miller’s child.
Your qualified guide will help you discover mountain goats, horses, auroques (wild bulls), deer and long-legged warriors brandishing spears, all moving through dazzling countryside. For thousands of years, generations of artists have chosen Côa as their inspiration.
The Archaeological Park will organize personalised tours for you. In addition to visiting the drawings, you’ll have the chance to get to know the region, its customs and the excellent wines it produces.
