In some years now, and following a few studies have succeeded collected over 100 petroglyphs, carvings that were made in the rocks and rills based cups.

Each of these petroglyphs found has a different purpose, some for the purpose of religious worship, worship of water, such as maps, to promote water reserves, and some of them, their meaning is still unknown, according to Cayetano said.
