Tafí del Valle Menhires

Mysterious and ancient carved standing stones

Contributors: serflac

Approximately fifty ancient stone monuments dot the landscape of Menhires National Park. Created by the Tafi Culture, the carved stones date to between 850 BC and 780 AD. In 1897 the Italian Naturalist Juan Ambrosetti visited the stones. The site is now a National Archaeological Heritage Site.

The stones have been moved several times, and some have been damaged over the years.
