the town of Otañes, municipality of Castro Urdiales, the
Grande Cave or Cave of Los Corrales is located. It is a
cave that was always known by the natives, who used this
place for different purposes until the rupestrian
evidences were studied and the cavern got closed.
On April, 1993, a team from the Area of
Prehistory of the Historic Science Department of the University
leaded by Dr. César González Sainz, begun the cave
research, both materials found on the surface and the
palaeolithic parietal representations.
The palaeolithic rupestrian group
located in this cavity is reduced to two face to face
representations of animals. It is a deer facing to the right and a goat facing to the left. Both figures are engraved
with an only trace getting the striated engraving
technique, we can find them in furniture art, in the
famous engraved shoulder-blades of the Castillo, and Altamira Caves that can be included in the Magdalenien.
