Fascinating canyon and Caves With tons of different paintings, mostly of hands, but also of different animals and symbols. Everything from 1300 to 9300 years old. Rare to see such old manifests of a long gone Indian culture in these parts of the world. No...More

The site itself is beautiful and mysterious. Really. I mean, thankfully, it is protected by Unesco since 1999 as a World Heritage Site. The “Cave of Hands” is 18-20km from the Estancia Cueva de las manos (formerly Estancia Los Toldos, see my review). The road...More
