  • To learn about the caves of hands, we stayed in the town Perito Moreno in the province. Santa Cruz, from there a few miles along Route 40 is the detour for the entry to them, which are some Km of gravel. I hire a tour and we showed before the land of colors and rocks, with different shades for the minerals that contain. According to count of these crushed stones, the inhabitants of the region dating back to 9000 years ago, drew the painting to leave the area the images of hands at the beginning and then other figures. Arriving at the entrance we did the tour, it is a path of easy access and insurance since not entering any cave, is passed to the side of a river that is not allowed and an overhang of rock protected with a few bars. paintings with the negatives of the hands, are clearly the cave the originiarios used it to take refuge. Worth the visit and check how colors and drawings are maintained through the years.

  • Not only are impressive cave paintings, guided very well along the path (which is a little difficult), is shocking the Pinturas River Canyon. It is an unexpected place. Impossible not to visit. They should improve a bit the way, since it is difficult in some sections for small cars.
