Petroglifo A Laxe das Cabras

A work of rock art which demonstrates the intelligence of our ancestors

When you visit this work of art from the Bronze Age you will feel like it has been waiting for you for thousands of years. The location of this giant rock, between the trees and animal paintings over it, demonstrates that its creators wanted to show their work of art to the whole world and that it survived. And it goes deeper than its own image, it also shows the intelligence of the inhabitants of its time, as they drew six legs for each animal. Did they want to represent movement?
