||Salitre cave was
located by Lorenzo Sierra in 1903. In the entrance to the
cavern remains of bears, deers, chamois, goats, horses
and elks were documented together with a deposit from the
Solutrean. A gallery, where Lorenzo Sierra saw several
representations of animals, gets open behind the entry.
On the other hand, Hermilio Alcalde del Rio, during one
of his visits, localized other figures. In the 80s, F.
Bernaldo de Quiros y V. Cabrera worked in a new research
of the cavity decorations, in which they gave new
interpretations to the figures.
The group of the
caveppresents two hinds in inkpad,
and one in black linear trace, one possible bovid head, one caprid
and antlers. Non-figurative engravings, black

also documented. The bad conservation of the pigments
