Located in Puertas de Vidiago, twelve kilometres from Llanes, is the Ídolo de Peña Tú, a sandstone crest that stands out to the west of the Sierra de la Borbolla, in an area where some fifty burial mounds are preserved.
In its lower part there is a small shelter where the paintings and engravings are located. They are in a poor state of conservation, mainly due to the effects of erosion.
Two types of representations can be distinguished. The first consists of painted outlines, a series of punctuations and anthropomorphs. The second, engraved and painted, includes the idol itself and a dagger.
A third group, from the modern period, consists of engraved and punctuated crosses.
The motifs of the idol and the dagger, together with the characteristics of its location (a rocky shelter located in an environment consecrated in the Megalithic period as a funerary area), are the factors that allow us to relate the Peña Tú cave complex to the presence of the burial of some important person.Built in: 1,700 and 1,400 BC.
