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.

  • This trip does not visit the Park because we had already gone on a previous trip and did not see the sense to repeat. The menhirs were removed from their original locations, which was what made sense since it is believed that one of its functions was that of mark the time, to be touched by the Sun at different times of the year. When we visited the park were scattered at random, without any explanation or anything from information. They are on a hill without any shadow, so if they go around noon. Admission is free and the route is short, so if you are out there go, but don't expect to find much.

  • A nice place to visit. The guide was excellent and not charge you input. You can leave a comment on a book they have to exit. Interesting!
