Petroglyphs of Chan do Rato 2


Description:
Situated 10m NE of a small granitic batholith that rises more than 1.50m above the ground, this rock is located on the NW slope (towards the Ría of Vigo) of a small coto (elevated area), just before a small flat area (Chan do Rato).

The granite stone, with a rounded convex surface, has an inclined plane following the natural slope of the land.

There is one irregular, very deteriorated, circular motif (24cm in diameter) with five cupmarks 3-4cm in the interior. 30 m to SSW of this motif there are some carved letters, certainly of recent manufacture: "LANA. . .M".
