The National Park of Rock Engravings

The Rock Engravings National Park is located in Capo di Ponte, a city in the heart of the Camonica Valley. It was established in 1955 as the first Italian archaeological park, in order to protect and enhance it. The park preserves 104 rocks, sandstone smoothed by glaciers, engraved with divine and heroic representations. The site was recognized in 1979 as a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its uniqueness and importance. The park developed in different historical periods: from the Upper Palaeolithic to the Iron Age up to the Roman and Medieval age, the latter considered as the post - Camunian period. The site offers the possibility of guided tours and educational activities for families, in order to bring children closer to the fascinating history of rock art.
