Travel back thousands of years in time as you gaze at the awe-inspiring cave art in Abrigo de Voro in Quesa.

Not only is the mountainscape of Macizo del Caroig a place of natural beauty, it is also home to some incredible cave art. At the basin of the river Escalona sits Abrigo de Voro, a cave which has about fifty examples of Levantine Art, the largest concentration of the paintings found in the area.

These examples of cave art are beautifully executed and in a good state of conservation. The paintings depict a number of different subjects, but predominantly archers standing in different positions, women, goats and deer. The paintings are located on the walls and the ceiling of the cave, coming together to create scenes that provide an insight into what life was like for the people who painted them.

Out of all the paintings, a group of four figures will catch your attention. The figures are archers, painted with a lot of detail, including arrows, weapons and different types of headdress. The figures have been studied over the years and the general interpretation is that they depict a ritual dance, due to the angles of the lines and their attitude.

Abrigo de Voro has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. If you would like to visit this incredible cave, book your place on a tour and marvel at the art, accompanied by expert guides who will tell you everything you need to know.
