Tito Bustillo Cave, World Heritage

Tito Bustillo Cave is one of the most important Palaeolithic art sites in the world. On 7 July 2008, the Permanent Committee of UNESCO inscribed this site in its select list of World Heritage together with four Asturian sites (Pindal, Peña de Candamo, Llonín and Covaciella) and twelve more sites in Cantabria and the Basque Country.

The need to preserve and conserve the unusual heritage of the cave and the hard-to-reach location of most of the artistic groups led to the creation of the Tito Bustillo Cave Art Centre.

The Centre is aimed at promoting dissemination and research of the life and the artistic production in Tito Bustillo in connection with other Asturian sites. A modern and innovative exhibition offers significant insight into the artistic creations of our ancestors.
