Museu do Côa


Open to the public since July 30, 2010, the Côa Museum offers visitors a trip back in time to the dawn of the development of mankind, when the first attempts at symbolic representation framed by a new relationship of man with nature and the emergence of Culture. Three rooms of contextualization and thematic introduction to expository and four rooms where we present the monographic treatment of the rock art in the Coa Valley.

The Côa Museum relies on different ways of presenting content. The solution adopted reflects, admittedly, the use of multimedia technologies, together with the use of photography and design. Associated with a careful display of found objects and are used images of engravings and archaeological sites of the Coa Valley, an environment created for new media and readings.
