Menhires Provincial Park, Tafi del Valle
(2.3/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • If we think about it from an anthropological point of view, this museum is a horror... But it is interesting to see if you like archaeology and related to the local culture. The Menhieres were scattered throughout the Calchaqui Valley and joined them and took them to this property, so it is an artificial place. But if you want to see them and have time, a guide explains you about the stones and their origins...

  • If you visit Tafí del Valle they cannot meet the Park the menhirs and cross it with a guide. They give this seasoning to the history and customs of the place!
