The Gruta do Escoural was discovered in 1963 by workers of a marble quarry then working in the area. The investigations immediately undertaken, in addition to revealing its use as a necropolis during the Neolithic period, allowed for the discovering on its walls of traces of Rock Paintings and Engravings dated from the Upper Paleolithic.
