About halfway between Darfo and Edolo, the Parco Nazionale delle Incisioni Rupestri is a 30-hectare open-air museum containing rock engravings that date back as far as the Bronze Age. From the reserve's museum colour-coded paths loop through chestnut woods revealing an intriguing array of stick figures, huntsmen on horseback and fighting warriors all etched onto rock slabs.

Especially rich is Rock No 1 (aka Roccia Grande). The site also features reconstructed villages and a host of hands-on prehistoric activities that see you metal smelting, wheat milling and doing some daubing with natural paints.
