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.

  • It is a small park with an important cultural value. Very nice guides. To take many pictures and play hide and seek...

  • The menhirs are stones with archaeological appeal. But it did not seem us anything of this world. In general, Tafi del Valle disappointed us a little, beyond the beautiful landscape.
