Parque de la Prehistoria

Museum in Senda del Oso

Four kilometres south of Entrago, this park-museum is well worth a visit for its excellent introduction to Spanish and European cave art. It includes replicas of Asturias’ World Heritage–listed Tito Bustillo and Candamo caves and France’s Niaux cave, along with a good museum-gallery that explains much of the what, when, who, how and why of Europe’s Palaeolithic cave-art phenomenon.

Adjacent to the museum, visitors can observe modern-day descendants of prehistoric horses, cows and bison grazing peacefully in their enclosures.
