The legend that holds the hill Champaquí.

The Punilla and Calamuchita separate that chain Sierra Chica.

The peasants call "pampilla" the plateau that crowns the hill, near which there is a circular lake.

In his Caminos Argentina (1940), the prominent novelist César Carrizo Rioja (1889-1950), tells a poetic climb the mountain in the company of Don Rosendo de Tejeda and Cabrera: "Pastors as in the days of Abraham; vaque¬ros who herd their cattle; women black eyes and long braid, which very well have gotten the Marqués de Santillana for their serranillas; lion hunters scurry through the cliffs, followed by his jau¬ría, and farmers who sow their land, greet us with hat in hand ".

Montes Pacheco first makes a reference to the translation indicating "Water Summit" and then tries that found that would be related to the work of channeling irrigation water by champas. Idea suggested by Domingo A. Bravo, who sees champached function, ie, the "champero or champeador" as Quechua, an answer to the mystery.

Argentavis is the largest flying bird ever discovered.

With a wingspan estimated at seven meters across,‭ ‬Argentavis was roughly twice the size of the largest flying bird today‭ (‬Wandering Albatross‭)‬,‭ ‬and only the long extinct pterosaurs could have rivalled and exceeded it for size.‭ ‬

How such a large bird like Argentavis could fly has been the key area of study associated with this bird,‭ ‬something that has resulted in some interesting conclusions.‭ ‬The first is that the keel of the breastbone is quite small which suggests the main flight muscles were reduced when compared to other flying birds.‭ ‬This means that even though the wings were huge,‭ ‬Argentavis did not have the stamina to continuously flap them.‭
