    Description

    A small cave with a mouth measuring 8.5 m and some 5 m deep that has examples of schematic rock art on the walls, namely a series of four vertical bars and a ladder-shaped sign.

    All these paintings are done in red.

    The opening was used as protection for a rustic beehive and is closed off by a wall.

    The walls of the cave are smooth and pale and so make an excellent surface.
