#2 of 6 in Things to do in Tafi del Valle
Walk among a collection of stones carved by Tafi people at Menhires Provincial Park. Known as menhirs, the monalithic stones were carved between 820 BCE and 780 CE, and held special significance in the Tafi culture. According to some theories, the stones represented magical characters in Tafi folklore, and possibly symbolized fertility due to their phallic shape. Unfortunately, the stones have been moved from their original positions, stripping them of a lot of their meaning.

  • The menhirs were part of an ancient Observatory as Stonlhenge. To make the dam and the first road ran it to the side and how they stole most of the stones, what was left exposed in a closed courtyard. They destroyed everything. Equal worth seeing what am.

  • Very interesting visit. The entrance is free. The guides are very attentive and trained. Unfortunately the landmarks were not conserved in their original places. But it is still an attractive visit. The natives left their mark, there was no writing there is little information. The visit is very entertaining and enjoyable. Good as a complement to the visit to Tafí del Valle. A stop along the way for a tour to the native anthropology

  • Located opposite the plaza de El Mollar. It is an archeological reserve where it is possible to observe monoliths accompanied by explanatory legends that allow you to get closer to the history of the Valley.
