Ruin Tourist Spot
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 they come to Los Molles, and have the time, it is interesting to see this park where there are not only mehnires, but also grasslands and other pre-Columbian stone artifacts.

  • It's a cute and interesting walk that does more than half an hour. It is also free. Interesting to learn about the history and culture of the inhabitants of the area for thousands of years!
