Mount Rich Petroglyphs

The Mount Rich Petroglyphs are located in the St. Patrick's river valley near the village of Mount Rich in the parish of St. Patrick. Take the main road from Sauteurs to Mount Rich village. The access path is on the left. It may or not be marked. If not, you'll need a guide.

To reach the petroglyphs, you'll need to scramble over some rocks in the riverbed to reach a large stone. Look at the top and sides for carvings displaying pottery, tools, spears and headpieces, all representations of the daily lifestyle.

Although this is known as the Carib's Stone, researchers have suggested these predate the Caribs and probably were made by an earlier Amerindian tribe.

This area has the most extensive petroglyphs on the island. Other smaller rocks also bear carvings but many are faded and others are indistinct due to the algae growth on the stones.
