What do you want to do in the Reserve?

Rock Art

The Monfragüe Biosphere Reserve has one of the most extensive and most representative concentrations of cave paintings in the Iberian Peninsula. In Monfragüe National Park alone 107 shelters have been discovered which have been catalogued as containing prehistoric rock art, but many more have been found throughout the length and breadth of the Reserve. 

This ensemble of shelters has been included on the Cultural European Itinerary of Prehistoric Rock Art Trails (PRAT) and is one of the most special cultural and nature activities which you can carry out during your visit to the Reserve. 

Where can I see cave paintings?

The most outstanding place in the area is the Castle Cave or Shelter which is considered one of the most important rock art sites in Spain; furthermore its upper panel of anthropomorphs is one of the most famous in world schematic art. The paintings of the shelter of Santa Catalina in Serradilla can also be visited. 

To find out more about rock art and the prehistoric culture of the Monfragüe Biosphere Reserve, don’t miss the Rock Art Interpretation Centre in Torrejón el Rubio, which is ideal if you are with children, and the Mark of Man Interpretation Centre in Serradilla where you will discover the life of the inhabitants of the Reserve from prehistory to the present.
