ARCHEOLOGICAL SITES: SIEGA VERDE & FOZ CÔA. OPEN AIR ART

Côa Valley (Portugal) and Siega Verde (Spain) provide the best illustration of the iconographic themes and organization of Paleolithic rock art, using the same modes of expression in caves and in the open air, thus contributing to a greater understanding of this artistic phenomenon. Together they form a unique site of the prehistoric era, rich in material evidence of Upper Paleolithic occupation.

Paleolithic art was discovered in caves and therefore people thought that the place where they had to portray these things was inside caverns, and this Paleolithic art in the open air, which is an art of light, is a more public art form, it’s an art intended to be seen, more than cave art is.

The body of carvings in the Águeda and Côa valleys represents, without a doubt, the largest known collection of Pleistocene-era carvings anywhere in the world.
