Petroglyphs in Galicia

Petroglyph in Galicia

This petroglyph is something different: impossible to miss, very clearly carved in stone, the image of the deer incredibly present.

This one is the Os Mouchos petroglyph, just a few kilometers from our house, near Rianxo.  A relyc of the Bronze Age just around the corner.
