Jose Maria Cave

Jose Maria Cave

The Jose Maria Cave is a remote cavern in the limestone formations of East National Park, Domincan Republic. From a small outer opening, the cave widens to elaborate interior chambers. Over 1200 individual pictographs have been carefully documented over the past several years.
Pictured here, John W. Foster and Steve James look at a limestone wall in which some of the early pictographs depict a scene of tribute to the Spaniards.
