The ancient settlement of several pre-Hispanic cultures such as the Molle culture, where we can find petroglyphs and pictographs. Located 30 minutes from our Hotel, it is a place you have to visit. Archaeologists, amazed by the drawings found, decided to name it as Limari style.
This is one of the emblematic sites of the country, where a lot of petroglyphs have been found left by ancestral cultures. You can see faces, human forms and also some that let the imagination fly with beings from other worlds.
The tacitas stones, so named, obey slits in the rocks that were used to grind by molles and diaguitas, and whose diameter is precisely the size of a cup. However, there are others that are much larger.
