There are many tourist attractions in the province of fernet and la birra. This time we tell you everything about a path that encompasses many of the wonders of the province. In this area, in a very remote time there were volcanoes that today remain inactive. They can be seen in the Pocho department on the vera del camino. In addition, they are surrounded by “palms”, which turn the landscape into a unique photograph.
Starting the journey from Taninga by RP28, the road invites you to go slower, watching and preparing your gaze to delight. At this point you can find perhaps one of the most imposing panoramas in the apartment . Upon arrival you can access the tunnels , a road work of 5 steps below the mountain.
This road is shown covered by extensive palm trees that are a real surprise for the visitor . Continuing, a set of dormant volcanoes rise to the sky exhibiting their worn peaks . Later a small chapel, which began to be built around 300 years ago, is witness to the tranquility that reigns in these places.
The road, which is very recently asphalt, begins to surround the mountains that take you to the ancient Tunnels of Taninga. There are five in total, but it's best for you to stop and watch the different places . First Las Palmas and its old volcano extinct in the background. Then the five tunnels and the viewpoint of the Quebrada la Mermela . From Ser Argentino we recommend you to prepare the camera to take the best photos .
The history of this road dates back to the 1930s, its creation allowed a more fluid connection between the provinces of Córdoba and La Rioja. From some viewpoints, you can see a waterfall, known as the “bride's veil” . Below, the vast forest plains mark the provincial boundary.
The region of this road involves 3 percent of the native forest of Córdoba, large hectares are under shelter, such as the Chancani Natural Reserve and the Traslasierras National Park. The latter is located around the former estancia Pinas that belonged to politician Lisandro de la Torre. Already since 2018 protected area.
The predominant species of flora are typical of a dry forest region: carob, mistoles, quebrachos and palm caranday among others. The fauna is characterized by the presence of animals such as pumas, melero bears, guanacos, martinetas, black carpenters, necklace peccaries and endemic species such as cordovan tucu tucu . The area is estimated to be habitat 161 species of birds, 24 species of mammals and 30 reptiles.
