Virgen del Campo site


Found in the village of Enciso. No less than 506 dinosaur imprints await us here, as well as marks made by the dinosaurs' skin, signs of the tail being dragged, and scratches made by these animals while swimming. Walkways allow the traveler to observe the fossil tracks without setting foot on the surface. Particularly noteworthy is a cluster of tracks (approximately at the halfway point of the walkway) where we can make out the track of a carnivore as it picked up speed. The tracks visibly grow farther and farther apart until they are finally mixed with the tracks of a herbivorous dinosaur, a discovery that clearly suggests a prehistoric hunting scene, along with mollusks and ripples, the marks left by sand dunes in this area, that long ago was filled with  shallow water.
