A few metres from the Cueva del Tesoro (Treasure Cave) is the La Victoria cave, an area of high historical value, as for thousands of years it has been a place where ancient inhabitants have lived together and where different cultures have passed through.
The Cueva de la Victoria was a busy burial site during the Neolithic period. Some 13.000 years ago, the silhouettes of several individuals were captured in one of its galleries. Each of them is positioned differently in front of the other, representing the living, as the remains of those who died were placed in the centre of that gallery.
The anthropomorphic typology is the most numerous among the group of paintings, with 67 individuals represented. The majority of the human figures are based on a simple scheme representing the trunk and the upper extremities.
The most striking and peculiar thing about this group of thematic motifs is the tonality they present. It is a colour that originally should have been almost white, although it has now turned to a more yellowish tone.
The vestiges found in La Victoria go far beyond the paintings. Numerous pieces have been recovered and are still on display in the National Archaeological Museum as one of the main Neolithic references on the peninsula.
