An exhibition of the Palaeolithic period and Late Prehistory.

It is part of the Altamira Caves and Palaeolithic Cave Art in northern Spain declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

This cave, located on La Gama Mountain, is divided into various levels. In the upper hall there are human burial sites, while on the intermediate level there are a large number of palaeontological remains, mainly bones. However, the most important remains are on the lower level, where you can see three, intact areas with many examples of painted art. Special mention should be made of a highly realistic black horse, and of a host of symbols painted in red. Close by there are also representations of goats, bison and panels with hands. They date from 28,000-13,000 years ago.
