Pleistocene-Holocene site located on the coast of  Biscay.

Settlements of Homo sapiens.

 

 

Within the framework of this project, the section of the excavation carried out by J. M. Barandiarán in the 1930s has been re-opened. The main objective was to obtain a more precise stratigraphic reading and to contextualize the sequence, both chronologically and culturally.

Thanks to these works, it has been possible to document occupations from the Gravettian and Magdelenian periods, primarily those with abundant remains of lithic industry and objects fabricated from bone.
