A place with a lot of historical value and barely nobody knows about... Simple but totally worth visiting
Great exposure to a significant Northeastern Brazilian prehistoric landmark. As an anthropologist, I found worth visiting it.
The Ingá Stone is located in the middle of the Ingá River in the small Brazilian city of Ingá (know you know how it got its name). What is it? It’s a rock formation that is covered with petroglyphs (or stone picture carvings). The prehistoric carvings were done over time and the most recent additions may have been added as recently as the 18th Century—all done by local native tribes. The meaning and/or purpose of these carvings is unknown and undeciphered. Some of the carvings resemble animals, fruits, the Orion Constellation and other less-easily distinguishable figures. The carvings are also known as the Itacoatiara do Ingá (pronounced: “EEta- cwa – tiara”), which is the name in the Tupi language of the original natives. “Ita” means stone and “coatiara” means picture. This is not the only such site with carvings in this part of Brazil, but it is one of the biggest. Still, when we visited, there was nobody here. The northeast of Brazil is less-visited by tourists than the south; this site sits 100 kilometers (60 miles) from the capital of the state, so that also contributes to the lack of tourism, but that’s good for you if you do go! To get there, the roads aren’t bad and you can find it on your Waze or Google Maps. I was really impressed with this site and I was very glad I visited. If you’re anywhere near here, you really should come visit.
Excellent site and beautiful scenery :)
Visit to an archaeological site with Itacoatiaras, rupestrian inscriptions made in the rock, in low relief, with still indecipherable figures...let your imagination run wild. Attached is a small museum with an exhibition of animal fossils, mainly. Local guide explains/tells the story in an enlightening way. Marquinhos, local guide, attentive and helpful. I recommend: @cliotur_receptivo, for the tour... talk to Ricardo and/or Carlos. perfect
