The rock paintings appear in the entrance to three caves, where you can appreciate animal figures that defy the imagination. These caves contain narrow corridors that start just meters from the entrance. With difficulty it’s possible to get close to the roof where you can see expansive paintings of herds of animals. Representations of people in dancing poses can also be found, but the most important paintings depict a chessboard-like patchwork painted in red, yellow and orange.
