Valle de la Luna

A 60,369-hectare Provincial Park located in Northeast San Juan Province, 140 Km away from Villa Unión, Valle de la Luna (literally: “Valley of the Moon”) is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site, like its Talampaya neighbour.

Because of its desert landscape, resembling the moon surface images we often see in documentaries and magazines, the park really transmits a feeling of visiting a place where time flows at a slow and unchanging pace. This is, evidently, the origin of its name.

Also from the Triassic period, the site includes a Palaeontology Museum, where visitors have access to dinosaur replicas from the first inhabitants of the planet, as well as the bone remains from the local archaeological discoveries.
