Teverga Prehistoric Park

We have not actually visited this park, so Asturias Guide’s information about it is second hand.

The Teverga prehistoric park is situated about 40 km (25 miles) from the Asturian capital of Oviedo, so it can make an alternative day out if you are based in or close to Oviedo or Gijon. It is a recent attraction.

The location of the park is rural and the main feature of this complex is a large timber panelled single story structure that cuts its way into a tree lined hillside and acts as a museum.

Inside the structure there are prehistoric cave drawings and paintings that are credited as Altamira, Covalanas, Lascaux, Niaux, Chauvet, Tito Bustillo, Candamo, Covaciella and Llonín. The attraction’s website says that this collection offers the best single collection of European cave art available.

Whether these paintings are the originals, all brought to a single location, or copies and representations, we do not know. However the museum itself is an impressive building both inside and out, so our guess would be the latter.

The Teverga Park has what appears to be a subterranean cave with unusual rock formations, so this could explain the selection of this particular site for the museums location.

The museum also has educational value and one of its objectives is to show mans development through time and his connection with art. This may part of the experience may be lost on visitors if there are no foreign language guides, but the items of art will no doubt be self explanatory.

More information

For more information you can visit the attractions website at atraccionmilenaria.com. On the main page there is a link to various alternative language versions of the site, however all seem to be a badly translated single page synopsis with very little information. As such it is hard to tell whether this is something worth seeing or not, however its location will ensure that the journey through stunning scenery will be worth while.
