The San Francisco de Miculla petroglyphs, commonly known as the Miculla petroglyphs, are petroglyphs located 22 kilometres (14 mi) from Tacna, Peru.[1] They are carved in low relief in the rocks, and depict people fighting, dancing and hunting animals.[2] They are believed by many to be around 1500 years old, although various people date them from as wide a time period as 500 AD to 1445 AD.[2]
