Penascosa

Penascosa is the most accessible and intelligible site within the Côa valley archaeological area. Most of the engravings here were created using abrasion and chipping techniques, and the movement of animals is recreated in an extraordinary way, such as the mating scene, showing a mare mounted by a three-headed horse.
