This valley is located at the foot of Mt Bego and houses more than 40,000 rock engraving. There were created 5000 years ago by people who were contemporaries of Ötzi, the man discovered in ice in Austria in 1991.

It is the largest site of rock engraving in Europe. This is really an exceptionnal place. The Mt Bego was a sacred mountain for these people.

You can enter the valley from the Roya valley using the junction towards Casterino, or else from the West, walking from the Gordolasque valley (in the upper Vesubie valley) via the Arpette pass.

To protect the engravings, it is now forbidden to leave the trails. This enbable you only to see a few of them. To see the others you must be with a guide.
