The Paidahuén Archaeological Park is a national monument, known locally for its geological, archaeological, and, more recently, viticultural importance. This isolated hill is located on the northern bank of the Aconcagua River, in the town of San Esteban, Region V, Chile.
At the top is a group of rocks engraved with petroglyphs, mysterious symbolic images that have been attributed to the pre-Columbian Aconcagua and Inca cultures. The oldest dates back more than 500 years.
Mt. Paidahuén—or Tapihue, as it was originally called—is visited daily by students, tourists, and academics interested in studying this type of artwork to learn more about ancient civilizations and the strong influence of the Inca Empire in this area.
Viña San Esteban is currently in charge of the protection and upkeep of the Paidahuén Archaeological Park. This includes coordinating visits and promoting the cultural heritage of the site, taking into account its deep significance in the identity of the current residents of the community.
Studies undertaken to interpret the true meaning of the rock engravings show that they were not created accidently or by chance. From the peak, it becomes clear that the natural context must be taken into account, including the hill’s relation to other peaks, its strategic location and easy access, and even the predominately northern orientation of the drawings.
We invite you to visit this beautiful site to see the legacy left by our forebearers—to discover and interpret what they wanted to tell us through the petroglyphs.
Visit the Aconcagua Valley and discover the beauty of the Chilean countryside. Just an hour and a half from Santiago, you can enjoy the unique natural scenery of the Andes Mountains and Mount Aconcagua—the highest peak in America.
