The cave paintings discovered in the L’Escoda cave, Racó d’en Perdigó cave and D’en Carles cave serve as proof of Neolithic occupation in the Tivissa-Vandellòs mountains.
In a land of intricate terrain, the caves and caverns were the places where men and women who lived on this land between approximately the year 6000 and 1000 B.C. expressed their symbolic universe through cave paintings. They depicted human figures, some as archers, as well as deer and goats.
These paintings, like those of over 750 archaeological sites around the Mediterranean and the Iberian Peninsula, were declared World Heritage in the year 1998, as they represent a unique demonstration that bears witness to the progression from hunter-gatherer societies to agriculture and livestock societies.
