Prehistoric art with views of the estuary
Your tour of the Archaeological Area can be combined with a visit to the Interpretation Centre where you can learn more about the features of the prehistoric petroglyphs discovered in the municipality.
The permanent exhibition provides a didactic explanation of the various carvings, the motifs represented, their meanings and the archaeological research.
One of the most interesting exhibits in the centre is a life-size, 3D reproduction of the petroglyph of Pozo Ventura, one of the most important sites in the Poio municipality owing to its exceptional carvings, similar to ones found in Brittany and in the British Isles.
The visit is completed with an audio-visual display depicting what life was like in the Bronze Age, 4,000 years ago, and an interactive game designed for children and young people.
