Caves and Botanica Gardens, Cueva de los Letreros, Almería, Spain

Of several World Heritage–listed cave-painting sites in the area, this Stone Age ceremonial site on a hillside near Vélez Blanco is the star. The reddish drawings, made some time before 5500 BC, show, among other things, animals, a large horned figure dubbed El Hechicero (The Witchdoctor), a set of interconnected triangles that may be a kind of family tree, and Almería’s favourite symbol the indalo, a stick person whose outspread arms are connected by an arc (possibly a bow). Visit Spain.
