Cave Paintings

Teruel was designed a World Heritage Site by UNESCO because there have been discovered over 70 Levantine cave paintings. They are considered as an artistic Paleolithic expression dating from the 6000 A.C. and 1500 B.C.Whereas in Paleolithic art human figures are not a common feature, in those cave paintings humans are showed together with plant and animal illustrations as part of daily scene representing war, hunting scenes, or rites in that times.

These paintings are placed in rock shelters outdoor in natural landscapes, which become a special characteristic in this kind of art preserving its beauty and symbolism in the course of time. If you are keen on combining heritage and nature, we suggest you to enjoy one of the many activities (hiking trails, interpretive centers, etc.) held in any of the three Cultural Parks in Aragon: Maestrazgo, Albarracin and Rio Martin, a way of protecting and promoting both cultural and natural heritage connected through Cave Paintings.
