    Very interesting site. There are some small rock dwellings to explore, and a museum with a collection of bones and fossils. The highlight though is a guided tour of a small cave, featuring 17000 to 19000 year old carvings, including a very rare human figure. We were lucky to be in a small group, and our guide was excellent. Well worth visiting.

    This small cave has one of the most unusual engravings of a human from around 19,000 years ago. The simple lighting and brilliant guide brought this to life and we had time to absorb and take in the...
