(as written on the landmark plaque at the site)

The Angono Petroglyphs is considered a highly significant cultural landmark because it is the oldest known work of art in the Philippines. It is included in the list of National Cultural Treasure of the country and World Inventory of Rock Art. It was also declared as one of the most imperiled historic sites in the world by the World Monuments Watch and the World Monuments Fund.
Human and animal-like figures are engraved on the rockwall made of vulcanic tuff. These figures are considered the oldest known art works in the Philippines, dating back to circa 3,000 BC.
