Piguen N'Onaxa - Campo del Cielo Cultural Nature Reserve


Campo del Cielo is a region between Chaco and Santiago del Estero where a meteor shower hit about 4,000 years ago. As a result of that event, two of the largest meteorites in the world were found; these can be seen during the visit to the theme park located near the town of Gancedo, in Chaco.

Open to visitors all year round. The theme park has a charged entry.
