Menhires Provincial Park, Tafi del Valle
Categories: Ruins, Tourist Spots
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.
