The Palaeolithic Art in the Côa Valley is perhaps man’s first land art manifestation.

The Museum is conceived as an installation in the landscape and the monolithic triangular form is a direct result of the valley’s confluences.

Architects: Camilo Rebelo + Tiago Pimentel/Sandra Barbosa

Location: Vila Nova de Foz Côa / Upper Douro Region / Portugal


The Côa Valley Palaeolithic Art site, is one of the largest known open air sites of Paleolithic art.

In the late 1980s, the engravings were discovered in Vila Nova de Foz Côa, in northeastern Portugal.

The site is situated in the valley of the Côa river, and comprises thousands of engraved drawings of horses, bovines and other animal, human and abstract figures, dated from 22.000 to 10.000 years BCE.

Since 1995 a team of archaeologists have been studying and cataloging this pre-historical complex and a park was created to receive visitors.

On December 1998 the drawings sites were considered as a "UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE SITE".

This Museum is a complement to the drawings sites, and oppened in July 2010.


Thank You for your visit , my Dear Friends!!!

I´m very glad and honored by all your kind comments and likes!!!

Best Regards from Portugal, Mário Eloi Castro
