La Cueva del Ratón Cave Paintings

Located high in the mountains of the Sierra de San Francisco.  This well preserved cave was used for shelter by the cochimí natives.  Thousand of year ago they painted on the rocky walls human figures as well as pumas, rabbits, goats, deers using black and red colors.   In the more modern times this cave was also used by the "californios" for shelter and protection from the wild animals.  This archeological site has been declared as a World Heritage (Patrimonio de la Humanidad)  by UNESCO, and has been named as one of the most important sites at the World level.
