Museo Altamira

Prehistory And Art

Prehistory is the first period in the history of humanity and, as such the human being and its legacy are its principal object of study. The objects provide a record of the level of technological development achieved, although it is the study of art that reveals the complex symbolic behaviour.

The Museum of Altamira researches, documents and undertakes conservation work for the collections of various archaeological sites throughout Cantabria. However, the cave of Altamira and the study of its rock art, together with its protection and conservation, constitute a full time priority for the museum.
