Between 1400 AD and 1800 AD the petroglyphs were created by people camping in the caves and windbreaks. The petroglyphs are not fully understood. They may record numbers of persons camping, birth or death records, rituals or record trips. They are facinating to see. It is possible to see them next to the shops from a concrete path or you can walk out to the far petroplyphs on the king's path. We were funny out on the path before we had seen any: every crack appeared to be a petroglyph... then we got to where they were.... They were easily seen and identified. It is amazing!

The walk out is not easy and I would recommend closed toed shoes as it is a rough lava walk. The walk is part of the kings walk. It can be followed across the island... It's very interesting to see the path winding across the landscape... it's easily picked out...
