Cave of the Hands near Perito Moreno

The Cueva de las Manos (Cave of the Hands) in Patagonia is one of the best works of pre-historic cave paintings, dating several thousands of years ago. Located in the Pinturas Valley, the cave paintings belong to the Teheulches people. The way they created the handprints, which are brightly painted in hues of red, black, white, and yellow, is very interesting: they pressed down one hand against the rock and blew the coloring agent through a blowpipe, which then left a negative stencil of the hand. Other paintings include hunting scenes, including guanacos.

While you are in Patagonia, consider adding one of the best hikes in Patagonia to your tour of Chile & Argentina.
