Complejo El Zapato, Capilla del Monte

2.4
#6 of 8 in Things to do in Capilla del Monte
Legend has it that hundreds of years ago, on every thirteenth moon, Indian chiefs, shamans, and healers would gather under Complejo El Zapato, which was shaped by wind and erosion in the recognizable form of a shoe. "The Shoe" clearly stands out among other granite rocks in this rugged and imposing mountain terrain. Look for a cave and a fountain next to the stone steps at the foot of the rock. Climb to the top of the rock for scenic views of the surroundings, including the Dolores River and the dam. A giant slide and a zipline will attract adventurous souls, while the rest can chill and grab a bite at a restaurant. For a memento to bring home, visit the crafts fair. Put Complejo El Zapato into our Capilla del Monte online driving holiday planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Completely abandoned its facilities, bathrooms in State great, actually all very depressing, typical of cordoba out of season

  • . From its height, you can see very well the Valley and the hills that surround it, allowing a very broad and rewarding view. Before boarding, there is a great slide as a game and a source area and crafts jobs.

  • Located very close to the Centre. If you like to walk calmly you can do it, soon arrive and there is not so much rise. It's a shame that people have written it with sprays and that lack of cleaning in place.

  • It's a beautiful area to see the whole valley, but the "zapato" itself is kind of a joke and not that interesting. They clued the rock on top of the base. Originally it was one piece, but now it just looks fake because of the cement. Aside from the shoe, go here to see the nice view of the mountains and the awesome lake. Good place to go to and very close to Capilla del Monte.
  • Very nice place to visit
  • charge you 20 pesos for parking and place this very careless is not worthwhile. Shame that this all written with spray. very dirty dog out there. Broken rails.

Where to stay in Capilla del Monte

The primary area to look for accommodations in Capilla del Monte lies in the north of town. Hotels boasting mountain views and additional amenities, such as pools, spas, and bars, sit on the grander streets. Simple, welcoming posadas (guesthouses) provide good options for more budget-conscious travelers. For a real outdoorsy experience befitting the attractive landscape that surrounds, consider staying at one of the campsites on the outskirts of town; you can choose between traditional pitched tents and rustic converted-barn accommodations.
