Milodon Cave Natural Monument

AttractionsNature & Adventure ToursSightseeing ToursOff the beaten track
With its 30 meters high, 270 long and 200 deep, the so-called Eberhard Grotto is located on the hillside of Cerro Benítez, 24 kilometers from Puerto Natales.
 
In 1896, the French Hermann Eberhard found the first indications of the existence of milodon in the area, in the form of pieces of skin and excrement in excellent condition. There were also vestiges of human settlements, which used the caves as shelters more than 12 thousand years ago. In honor of the milodon, the cave houses an impressive replica of the fiberglass animal.
 


The Cueva del Milodon is a site of great paleontological interest formed by three caves which have their remains almost intact. It is well known for having the “Devil’s Chair” at its entrance, a rock which, as legend says, was used by the mylodon as a throne. Others guarantee that it was Lucifer himself who lived here.


 
Don’t freak out! You’ll find a life sized replica of the famous mammal which the place is named after. Take a picture wrestling with the animal or a cuter one, giving it a hug. When you finish, take the time to have a picnic in the surrounding area, as there are special places to eat in the middle of nature.
