The Cave of the Milodon is an impressive crevice located on the slope of Benitez Hill . It is named after the Milodón, a 2,5 mt sloth that lived in Patagonia before being extict 10.000 years ago.

In 1896, the French researcher Hermann Eberhard found the first remains that proved the existence of this animal. Along with this there were remains of human settlements, who would have used these caves as refuges over 12.000 years ago.
