'Cueva Victoria, the Jewel of the Pleistocene', Kráser exhibition at the House of the People of El Llano (15/04/2019)

On Tuesday, April 16, the exhibition of the Cartagena urban artist Kráser named "Cueva Victoria, the Jewel of the Pleistocene" opens to the public.

The exhibition, organized by the City of Cartagena, in collaboration with the General Union of Workers (UGT), may be visited until June 30, at the Village House of El Llano del Beal, from 10 a.m. to 7 a.m. the afternoon.

The exhibition has an explanatory signage that shows from the formation of the cave to its discovery, later excavations and the most important paleontological findings that teach us a very diverse fauna from large carnivorous animals such as saber-toothed tiger or panther, to herbivores and even small rodents and bats, among which the giant hyenas that used the cave as a breeding ground have a prominent role.

It highlights the presence of human remains and an African papion that indicate a first European colonization through the Strait of Gibraltar.

In the exhibition also stands out a paleoenvironment of what the outside of the cave was like during the Pleistocene, about 900,000 years ago and the reproduction of a life-size mammoth.

It is expected that guided tours will be organized and announced later.
