Travel backwards in time to the Cueva de las Manos

The arid landscapes of Santa Cruz are home to a well-kept testimony of the past: drawings and stencilled outlines of human hands, guanacos, men and lesser rheas, which depict the daily lives, hunting scenes and land use practices of the first inhabitants of this place more than 9,000 years ago.

Marvel at the beauty of this perfectly preserved collection of rock art and a uniquely wild landscape: the deep canyon of the Pinturas River with its ochre colours and its low vegetation, inhabited by guanacos and condors. Prepare your camera and travel backwards in time.

 

Where: At Cueva de las Manos Provincial Park (Santa Cruz)
