Cave Art World Heritage

The cave art of the Mediterranean Arch of the Iberian Peninsula was declared world heritage by UNESCO in 1998.
It is the largest collection of rock art in Europe and embraces more than 750 locations situated on cliffs and rocky shelters of the autonomous communities of Andalusia, Aragon, Catalonia, Castilla la Mancha, Murcia and Valencia.

The figurative paintings range from simple geometric lines to compositions showing fighting rituals, hunting scenes, food gathering, dances...


In the region of Sobrarbe, there are more than 20 sites of world heritage cave art. Via different routes you can visit most of these shelters that have preserved these ancestral forms of art for millions of years.


Here you will find itineraries that you can download to your GPS, or check on the internet or at an informative kiosk in the Sobrarbe Tourist Office.
