Museo Altamira

The Times of Altamira

Life at Altamira

The life of the hunters and gatherers of the Upper Palaeolithic age is revealed through the archaeological objects on display, which take into account their original context and show how they were used and created.

Hunters and gatherers satisfied their requirements for survival by selecting natural resources through hunting, fishing and gathering.

Part of their daily routine took place inside the caves, around the homes.

Visitors can find out about their diet, the preparation of skins for making clothes and personal ornaments, the organisation of the society and its relationship to its surroundings, the economics of exploiting the surrounding environment, seasonal movement throughout the land, and the main archaeological sites in Cantabria.
