Talampaya National Park is a natural reserve located in the center-west of the province of La Rioja, in one of the seven UNESCO “World Heritage” sites in Argentina.

The huge number of fossils that have been found there made the park an important paleontological site. Among the fossils found is the Lagosuchus talampayensis, one of the first dinosaurs that inhabited the Earth 250 million years ago, in the early Triassic.

Valuable carved and painted ceramics found in the region indicate the presence of humans as early as 120 AD and 1180 AD.
