Located on the western boundary of Cordoba, the Sierra Grande has the highest hill of the province: the Champaquí, 2790 meters.

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 ".

Idea suggested by Domingo A. Bravo, who sees champached function, ie, the "champero or champeador" as Quechua, an answer to the mystery.

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.‭

From early June to the beginning of November, hundreds of right whales come near the shore to mate and breed. Some of them arrive with their offspring from several points in the cold southern seas, as indicated by their name Eubalaena Australis, whose morphology is recognized at first sight by those who take part in the whale watching tours.

  Featuring a dark, grayish and blackish body, heavy and with no dorsal fin, the right whale has certain callosities on their heads that let viewers differentiate them from one another and in turn, they represent a distinctive icon of this kind of cetaceans.
whales in patagonia1
  Cities like Puerto Madryn, Puerto Pirámides and Trelew welcome massive visitors from all over the world eager to see the famous whales either from the shore or on board some of the boats that provide the whale watching service. The largest concentration of specimens in the area takes place in September and October.

Whale watching has been practiced in this area for almost 40 years. The first tours were organized in the 1970s, when some ships that sailed around the peninsula noticed that the whales approached them with curiosity and, as they sensed the presence of man, they performed jumps and even swam in circles around the watercrafts.

  Today, the situation is exactly the same, but the passing of time, the appearance and institutionalization of whale watching, the scientific contribution to make a correct interpretation of their behavior and habits and, especially, the constant presence of these goddesses in the ocean have turned the southern right whale into an Argentinian and Patagonian passion.
whales in patagonia2
  The invitation has been made. Tails, jumps, backs, water jets. Everything is ready for whale watching to begin. We invite you to take part in this matchless experience, in which passion always gains the upper hand.
