CENTRE D’INTERPRETACIÓ D’ART RUPESTRE MUNTANYES DE PRADES (MONTBLANC)

Located in the mountainous massif of the Prades Mountains, in the Conca de Barberà, we find these 15 schematic and abstract Levantine rock art clusters. These cave paintings, which date to between 9,000 and 2,000 BC, attest to the real and symbolic world of our ancestors. At the Muntanyes de Prades Rock Art Visitor's Centre (CIAR), headquarters of the Conca de Barberà Regional Museum, visitors can view a sizeable representation of these prehistoric images and an exhibit featuring scale replicas of the rock shelters, to help introduce us to this enigmatic art form.

In light of its quality and distinctiveness, this site was registered as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1998. The Muntanyes de Prades Rock Art Visitor's Centre forms part of the Archaeology Museum of Catalonia's Rock Art Route and the European Cultural Route Prehistoric Rock Art Trails.
