Polychrome paintings of hunting scenes.
The paintings were discovered by Juan Jiménez Llamas in 1914, and caused great interest amongst specialists in prehistoric art on account of the huge number of figures and their thematic and stylistic variety. The Minateda paintings are located in five caves. Animal-based hunting themes predominate. They are dated between 6,000 and 1,000 BC. They have the World Heritage designation as part of Mediterranean Prehistoric Rock Art.
