In Chacala it is possible to observe interesting petroglyphs that tell us about its ancient inhabitants. In fact, just a few minutes from here, exactly ten kilometers away, are the "Altavista" petroglyphs, an impressive set of stone carvings in the middle of the thick jungle and on the banks of a stream. They are voices of ancient testimonies, of hundreds of years of mythological traditions elaborated by the original inhabitants of the region, beautiful abstract and symbolic expressions, which were carved with solid and sharp stones. The good condition in which most of the petroglyphs are preserved is surprising.
