Darro is located in the heart of the Sierra de Arana, offering magnificent panoramic views of the Penibetic mountain range. The town, located in the Hoya de Guadix, contains one of the oldest and most important prehistoric remains in the province, the Horá Cave. The urban area of Darro is a mixture of Andalusian and La Mancha architectural styles, as a result of the repopulation after the rebellion of the Moorish, creating a curious combination of urban landscapes.
The Abrigos de Panoría are a group of five large shelters visible from the village of Darro. In the shelter that is separated from the rest by one of the branches of the cliff and facing East, we can find the only preserved painting, an anthropomorphic figure of the “swallow” type and the remains of another possible figure, located on the left side of the shelter over a niche at a height of 1.60 metres from the ground.
To access this place, it’s necessary to cross dirt paths. It is advisable to use 4×4 vehicles.
