Project Rock Art and Google Street View


During summer 2012, the Camonica Valley joined the Street View project for a virtual visit to the UNESCO sites on Google Maps. As known, the rock art of the Camonica Valley entered the World Heritage List in 1979 as the first Italian site. Today, tourists can learn about the rich heritage of engraved figures, walking along the paths of one of the eight parks open to the public.

With the project, the National Park of Rock Engravings Capo di Ponte (BS), the Natural Reserve of Rock Engravings Ceto, Cimbergo Paspardo and the Archaeological Park of Seradina-Bedolina are now available to anyone with Google Street View Maps.

For the National Park of Rock Engravings Capo di Ponte, tourists can see the main route (the so-called "orange path") to know the natural environment and the "physical" characteristics of the site (paths, walkways, etc.). Tourists can use it to organize a trip to Valle Camonica with relatives or friends, or as a memory of a visit.

The initiative is a part of actions to enhancement the rock art heritage and to increase the visits to the Park.
