Rock art, great site!
The Penascosa site is very important in the Côa Park (see
more in TRACCE Online Bulletin #5), surely one of the most exciting.
The best place to to find a contact with
the Prehistoric Art. The area remains quite untouched, not beeing affected
by the negative impact of the Pocinho Dam. The engraved panels border
a quiet Côa river, like watching the animals while they were watering.
In a very close site Palaeolithic material (Magdalenian stone tools)
has been found. Horses and cows,
Pyrenaic goats and scratched deers show
a clear series of superimpositions. Not far,
the Quinta de Ervamoira is a beautiful
farm producing one of the best Porto Wines.
