We had a couple of minutes to burn in Cerro Castillo, so we checked out this museum complex. There is an old school with interpretive signs, some sort of supposed working lab, and the handprints. Everything is pretty darn boring here. The museum is nearly all signs - stuff that I could just read online if I wanted, which I don't. The lab thing is a non-factor as it is more or less an abandoned office. The handprints do cost to see. After a short walk with dilapidated signs, you will reach the handprints. Not much is really known about them. They are ok, but are just not that interesting. The whole campus is falling apart, looks bad, and is in no way engaging. I'd encourage people not to visit this attraction unless you need motivation to sleep later.

Dusty road in and a walk up a dusty path to the rock face where the painted hands are. I was expecting something a bit more spectacular but pretty amazing none the less. Glad I made the effort. As a bonus there are some interesting interpretation boards on the path about the geology, wildlife etc.

Rather remote but pretty cool. We were there years ago and I hear it's more developed now. If you're in the area it'd be good to see.

Of a small villa as cerro castillo. It is really isoleated and new. We went there for a mountain bike race that lasted three days with the most outstanding view. I recommended the casa museo or museum house that's the origin of the town.

The rock painting site is accessed from the historic school site, where a guide will accompany you to the rock face with the positive and negative hand prints.
The school is interesting from the point of the history on how schools were organised and developed over time. Also the steel cable roof construction is interesting, but I doubt of this is originally constructed this way.

For going to the "manos", with a 4WD you save a few 100 m walk uphill. The walk is not difficult.
In several other locations in south Chile and Argentina these paintings are found.
Not clear what the original meaning of the prints can be. Maybe marriage or adulthood signs?
Under the fallen rocks are possibly other paintings.
Pity the private sites further along the rock face cannot be visited.

The site in 30 minuets of walking from the village. It includes 2 parts: the historical museum and the wall of hands. The historical museum gives you inform about the everyday life in the area. The wall of hands includes red shadows of hands made by the native people. It is nice, but if you are not interested in the native people you might find it disappointing. It is a small and modest site.

Very nice place, friendly guide. The Hands have to take care of them, so that the wall is not destroyed, but I find it fascinating to see such vivid traces of people who passed by 3000 years ago... like a mystic.
On the way back it is worth going to the Escuela Museum, if you know Spanish. It tells the story of how hard it was to live in this valley until recently.
