Belmaco Archaeological Park

The first rock engravings found in the Canary Islands
It was in the 18th Century that the first petroglyphs (rock engravings) were discovered in the Canaries, in Belmaco in the south-east of La Palma. Since then the place has become a reference point for all those interested in the region’s past. Ten natural caves and an area of rock paintings- with their many different interpretation –make up this archaeological site, which has been declared a Historic Artistic Monument.
An archaeological park full of interest
The archaeological park has numerous services to help the visitor. The best thing to do is leave the car in the parking zone and head for the first place of interest, the performance centre, followed by an agreeable stroll through different archaeological sites, all of them will explanatory panels. At the end of the visit you can visit the shop where you’ll find good examples of traditional island crafts.
