Some of the best examples of Levantine art of Valltorta-Gassulla Cultural Park are preserved in Cingle de la Gassulla assemblage, also known as Cingle de la Mola Remígia. Ten rock art sites are included in this assemblage. Shelter IV is the biggest one, including paintings in two main groups. The most remarkable are a pair of large bulls and different kind of archers, some of them of the so called flying archers, because they are running with one leg extended frontward and the other extended backward. There are as well a human figure climbing a wall, and motifs that have been interpreted as spiders, spiderwebs and flying insects.
Guided tours to Cingle de la Gassulla depart from Mas de la Montalbana. The walk is 1.8 km long by a slope roughly 200 m high, that crosses by autochtonous woods of holm and gall-oaks. The full visit, including Cova Remígia site, could take around 2 hours.
The assemblage of Gassulla can be visited from the Mas de la Montalbana, which is located in Km 46 of CV-15 road, close to Ares del Maestrat village. Guided visit tours are offered that should be booked in advance calling to Museum of La Valltorta (tfno. 964 33 60 10).
