Roca Roja or Valldecerves cave paintings
The Roca Roja (Red Rock) set of cave paintings consists of various pictorial representations distributed across two facing cliffs.
The first (Cliff I) is formed by two cavities around 2.5 metres wide and 1.70 metres deep, with a height that varies notably. A figure can be made out on the first of these concavities, which might be a doe, while the second features a goat and traces of other figures. One of these traces might be a small archer figure.
Located a few metres to the right of Cliff I there is another larger cavity (Cliff II). It is 7 metres wide, 2.70 metres deep and around 5 metres high. There is a platform on the cliff at a height of 1.5 metres from the base. Four figures are located on Cliff II: a goat figure and traces of other figures.
The style of the identifiable figures is naturalistic and schematic tending towards naturalistic. The colour of the pictographs ranges from black-grey to chestnut-reddish colour. Given that no research has been carried out on the paintings, they have never been dated. Their discoverer, F. Navarro, associated the pictographs with the Neolithic period.
