Exhibition ‘Cueva Victoria, la Joya del Pleistoceno’ @ Village House of El Llano del Beal (until Sunday 30th June)
The exhibition highlights the presence of human remains and an African papion that indicate a first European colonization in the Strait of Gibraltar. There is also a paleoenvironment of what was the exterior of the cave during the Pleistocene, about 900,000 years ago and the reproduction of a life- size mammoth. There is also signage that shows from the formation of the cave until its discovery, later excavations and the most important paleontological findings that teach us a very diverse fauna from large carnivorous animals such as saber-toothed tiger or panther, to herbivores and even small rodents and bats, among which the giant hyenas that used the cave had a prominent role as a breeding cub.
