This Pre-Historic cave shows vestiges of Palaeolithic paintings and engravings, classified as National Monument. In the hill overlooking the cave, there is a Late Neolithic open-air sanctuary, as well as a Copper Age fortified village. In the surroundings, you will find a beehive tomb - a Megalithic sepulchre with a false dome – with a corridor, covered by small stones. Following the excavations, an important vow-related heritage was unveiled, comprising arrow points, ceramics, ornamental objects and over a hundred schist boards. It is located 20km south from Montemor-o-Novo, near Escoural village.
