Altamira Landscape

Altamira landscape stroll

The area around the Cave of Altamira is a recreation of the prehistoric landscape, with many of the same plant species that grew in the vicinity during the Upper Palaeolithic. These species were identified by analysing pollen found at the archaeological site.

During our stroll, we will visit areas normally closed to the public to discover what this territory was like and how it conditioned the lives of the hunter-gatherers who occupied this land in the times of Altamira. We will focus on elements of the landscape that were important to ancient settlers and how they used them.

Dates: June 24 Time: 12 am. Length: 60 minutes.

Free with the price of admission. Maximum of 35 people per session, places assigned in order of registration. Register at the cloakroom. Outdoor activity. Comfortable footwear is recommended. During the activity, museum staff may take photographs which will be used solely for educational and promotional purposes. Registration implies consent. This activity is carried out in Spanish.
