Fodor's Expert Review Layou Petroglyph Park

St. Vincent Indigenous Sight

Just off the main road beyond the small fishing village of Layou, about 30 minutes north of Kingstown and just north of Buccament Bay, petroglyphs (rock carvings) were carved into a giant boulder by Amerindian inhabitants sometime between AD 300 and 600. The petroglyphs are on UNESCO's tentative World Heritage Convention list; the meaning of the carvings remains unknown.
