Beskrivning

Prehistoric cave art in northern Spain

17 caves that represent one of the most important ensembles of Palaeolithic art in Europe.

The UNESCO designated Palaeolithic Cave Art of the Cantabrian Coast includes sites in the Autonomous Regions of Asturias, Cantabria and the Basque Country. Its 17 caves come together with Altamira Cave to conform this World Heritage attraction. The paintings you can see in them have an average age of 14,000 years and represent the pinnacle of Palaeolithic art in Europe. The number of different caves, the diversity of techniques and styles that can be seen and their good state of conservation underline the importance of the Cantabrian coast for Palaeolithic cave art.
