The history of Asturias

The parietal art in our region, which in some cases equates us with the great centers of Palaeolithic rock art in Europe, is of extraordinary quality, an example of which are the caves of Tito Bustillo in Ribadesella, The Buxu in Cangas de Onís, The sorrow in Candamo, The Pindal in Ribadedeva, The Loja in Peñamellera Baja ...

The early Asturian communities in the Eneolithic cultural stage built great funerary monuments, the dolmens. Examples of this type of burial are: Merillés dolmen in Tineo, the Santa Cruz in Cangas de Onís, the one in Pradías in Ibias ...

Already in the Bronze Age, there is a fundamental change in the funerary rite, passing to the incineration of the tumular necropolises. We are in the period of fields of tumuli, like that of the Sierra Plana de la Borbolla in Llanes or the one in Sierra de Penouta in Boal. Asturias has other archaeological sites belonging to the Bronze Age, such as the Idolo de Peña Tú in Llanes.
