Núcleo de Arte Rupestre da Faia

A nucleus composed of figures engraved in granite representing two opposed bovids and a sequence of four cattle heads pointed toward the ground, and that are associated to the schematic paintings of prehistory. Certain traits add painted details not recorded, admitting the possibility of some of the elements being Paleolithic. Is a UNESCO World Heritage site (1998) and National Monument by IGESPAR, integrating the Archaeological Park of the Coa Valley.
