The red paintings, found by chance by archaeologists looking for signs of ancient settlements, were made around the same time as the Altamira Cave paintings — some of the world’s best prehistoric paintings discovered in northern Spain in 1879.
“It was a chance finding,” archaeologist Diego Garate told Reuters.
“Although they were difficult to spot because they are badly deteriorated, our experienced eye helped us to identify them.”
