Magic Village Tour (Code: 0013)
Duration : halfday
To get to the tiny little village Pinte, you have to bike upwards 8 km through the characteristic fruit cultivations of the “Indian Valley” and the colourful Pinte - Ravine which presents you a work of art made by nature. Its hills and mountains seem to be painted with a colour palette of different red tones, ocher and purple and its rocks seem to be modeled by a sculptor.
Pinte – village is a place without public transport and without mobile phone reception.
Currently it’s inhabited only by some families that dedicate themselves to agriculture and ancient crafts. Framed by the colourful mountains, the village has such a lovely ambience that it seems to be scenery of a fairy tale. It has a little village square with fruit trees and an adobe made church.
Due to the deposits of paleontological vestiges in the surroundings, Pinte today relies on a small site-museum where various fossils of theJurassic, Cretaceous and Triassic, which evidence part of the history of our planet, are exhibited.
The museum further relies on other objects and vestiges of the place which show the particular local history.
To get back to our initial point, you get on the bicycle again to whizz downhill and enjoy the view over the valley. During summertime (November – March) it’s possible to take a bath in the Tránsito River before ending the tour.
