From c. 100 B.C. to A.D. 1300, the Sierra de San Francisco, Mexico (in the El Vizcaino reserve, in Baja California) was home to a people who have now disappeared but who left one of the most outstanding collections of rock paintings in the world. They are remarkably well-preserved because of the dry climate and the inaccessibility of the site
