Even though it has not been possible to determine exactly the dates the site was occupied, some of the archeological features can be dated to the Middle Preclassic and the Epiclassic (800 BC- 750 AD).
The archeological site, covering about half a mile in length, includes nearly twenty rock carvings made with a chiseling technique. Generally these are schematic outlines of human figures (anthropomorphic), animals (zoomorphic) and geometrical motifs, together with what might be calendar records. Rock carvings 1, 10, 11 and 15 are especially important because of their complexity and interpretation.
- The Palma Sola rock carvings were made in an extremely hard stone, at a time when metal was unknown.
- The site has been named Palma Sola after the spot where it is located. The original name and the identity of its inhabitants remain unknown.
- Human figures, mythical themes, geographical references, lineages, agricultural cults and time measurement are the main subjects depicted in the rock carvings.
