La Piedra Pintada, is a huge bolder where the natives that settled inside the volcano wrote in symbols. Their desendants read to you what their ancestes wrote..
There is only one area of petroglyphs so not really worth the effort for the petroglyphs, but it's inside the park that leads to the India Dormida and the park is worth the trip. Trails are steep, but explore beyond the Piedras Pintadas.
This place has deeply rooted history, and we're not taking good care of it. In other countries a rock like this, with an engraved map such as this one that is over a thousand years old, would we well secured, clean an better explained. This is the first stop on the way up to the India Dormida (sleeping indian girl).
This is a huge rock, full of petroglyphs, you need to go visit it with a tour guide so you can hear the story of the marks. If not, you will end seeing a carved rock. In El Valle there are other places to go, and this is one of the must to know the history of the Panamanian native... 更多
The Indians have all types of drawings on this big rock, and someone explains the rock. I passed by it on Sunday, but did not stop for the 'tour', b/c I'd done it B4

We were interested in hiking this trail up to the beautiful waterfalls because of the Petroglyphs on a huge boulder that Indians had carved on 500 or so years ago. The Piedra Pintada means "Painted stone and is located at the entrance to the hike. At first you are led up a stone path along long tables of colorful wares... 更多
The petroglyphs are not super impressive, but they are at the start of a very nice hike - see the sleeping indian hike. I highly recommend that.
For almost 2 years, we have not taken the time to visit this attraction because some people told us it was just a joke, not that great, etc., etc. Just recently, some other friends told us what a lovely place it is, so we decided to go ahead and check it out. We headed over there late one morning, and... 更多
This attraction was surprisingly the best I saw during my time in El Valle de Antón. The entire forest is well kept, very clean and affords several things to "ooh and ahh" over. From the carved art on the rock to the waterfalls and the hiking this attraction alone can be enjoyed for most of your day. The long hike... 更多
