Naquane national park, in Camonica Valley, it's an exciting prehistoric site. Rock Engravings show images of the local community and their daily life. Deers, palafittes, weapons, and mysterious objects such as labyrinths, shovels, and.. A rocket? Incredible attraction for children and grown-ups. Ps free entrance for children age 0-18, or standard ticket 6 euro.

What an amazing place. To see these carvings in their original locations out in the open was incredible. We loved looking st the variety of images and discussing them. The info boards were brilliant and the entry fee was low. It wasn’t far to walk around the park and there was so much to see. A brilliant two hours that we all enjoyed. Can’t recommend it highly enough.

When we arrived at Capo di Pointe, we were desparate for coffee and we first made our way to the cafes along the road near the station. There is a clear sign at the station giving you an overview of Capo.

Luckily for us, on our way for coffee, we spied a woman coming out of an underpass on via Nationazale. We could see the underpass would be the way to Naquane. A pedestrian sign marks the underpass. Once you get to the bottom of the hill, a signpoints left and right. We went right which included quite a few stairs, sometime through backyards. Right = steep. Going left is a milder grade up the hill.
Once you arrive, the gentleman at the gate give you details about where to find the best petroglyphs. They are amazing, that the men of ancient times could speak to us. We look at them and see for good and bad man hasn't changed.
These petroglyphs are set in a beautiful woodland setting with birch, chestnuts and pines. The park itself is worth the visit.
There are toilettes and water near the biggest petrogylphs.

Ok this place 'rocks'! If you are interested in ancient (3000+) civilizations, you MUST visit the Naquane park. Loads of incisions and graffiti to look at during a 2-to-3 hours visit surrounded by lovely nature. Bring something to eat and drink, wear comfy shoes and you'll love this place. We visited with our 4 children (8-10-10-13 of age) and everyone loved the visit. Short walk from the train station.
