The cave of Cobrantes or Cobrante, located in the neighborhood of Caburrao de San Miguel de Aras in Cantabria (Spain), is a prehistoric cave discovered in the late twentieth century.

This cave guards a site with elements of the Magdalenian, Postazilian Mesolithic, Bronze Age, and Iron Age. It also contains various works of Palaeolithic rock art. These are a series of Palaeolithic prints gathered into two groups, including animal representations and an anthropomorphic, as well as several samples of abstract schematic art: black marks, punctuations, lines, and angles. The engravings are considered to have been made in the Solutrean and Lower Magdalenian.
