By Alex Watkins THE EX­HI­BI­TION about pre­his­toric cave paint­ings at the Ali­cante ar­chae­ol­ogy mu­seum (MARQ), ‘Ru­pestre, los primeros san­tu­ar­ios’, has now closed hav­ing been vis­ited by 85,063 peo­ple since it opened on July 5.

It con­tained more than 250 pieces from nu­mer­ous na­tional and lo­cal mu­se­ums, bring­ing to­gether unique pieces of the prov­ince’s her­itage for the first time.

For the last two days of the ex­hi­bi­tion, Jan­uary 4 and 5, en­try to the MARQ was free, which en­abled about 1,4000 peo­ple to en­joy it at no cost.

The week­end was also the end of the ‘Plasti­his­to­ria’ ex­hi­bi­tion, which recre­ated key scenes from the evo­lu­tion and his­tory of mankind, from the Stone Age to the era of glob­al­i­sa­tion, us­ing fig­ures made of plas­ticine.
