The National Park Monte León is a representative sample of the patagonic coast.

The National Park Monte León is situated in the southeast side of Santa Cruz, over the National Route Nº 3, 210 kilometres far from the north side of Rio Gallegos.

The reason was that this area constitutes a representative sample of the patagonic coast in good state of conservation, with paleontological value places.
