Overview
More
The Naquane National Park of Rock Engravings in Capo di Ponte was the first park established in Camonica Valley in 1955. The area extends over 14 hectares of rock art land, a most important section belonging in Camonica Valley's World Heritage UNESCO site n. 94. In this park, in a magnificently wooded environment, one can admire as many as 104 engraved rocks, endowed with information panels, divided into 5 easy-to-walk routes for about 3 km. The entire tour of all paths takes at least 4 hours.

True, not all engravings are easily visible, but some really nice ones are. What I liked about the place is that you see the engraved rocks at exactly where those early homo sapiens did it - not in a museum.

We had a long drive to get here but it was worthwhile. There is a small and simple museum in via Piana 29 Nadra di Ceto and here most of the signs are only in Italian. The village is ancient, quiet and a dlightful place...More

The National Park of Rock Art in the Naquane area was a lovely place to imagine the thousands of years of constant use by men to express themselves carving on the glacier smoothed stone. The progression of images and, finally, alphabetic markings are quite remarkable....More

At the entrance of the park there is a small museum. Then you'll find a picnic place with playground. The walk on a loop path in the forest is very easy and suitable for families with young children. The path is well marked and you'll...More
