Mont Hermoso is so much more than sun, beach and unforgettable sunsets. In every corner of the spa, you can discover a new option that both adults and children will enjoy and spend unforgettable moments. For science lovers the place to be is the Vicente Di Martino Museum, which is located next to the Municipal Palace, behind the Craftsmen Gallery.
To calm their craving for knowledge, Mariana Garcia and Diego Minic went there, so that the venue’s manager Maximiliano Retamoso could tell them what to find there and what to do.
“Here you can find everything about the natural part of Monte Hermoso, with a permanent specimen of geological ages that specifically ends with 7,000-year-old human footprints on the beach, where we’ve been carrying them for years on guided tours,” he said.
“Fortunately, people are always addicted to these things and nowadays we always have full classes,” the museum scientist added.
In this sense, he indicated that the Foundation began operating on September 21, 1977 and that he had always cooperated with the neighbors of Monthermocinius.
“You have to think that Vicente de Martino came from Mar del Plata and fell here thinking that this was the Monte Hermoso that Darwin spoke of in 1833, when in fact this is the place known as the Monte Hermoso Lighthouse,”
To take a guided tour, it is necessary to pre-register for the museum: every day from 8 in the morning until 2 in the afternoon and from 6 in the evening until midnight.
There, amid an unimaginable fossil wealth, the tide in 1991 revealed human footprints ashore, near what is now the American complex.
“All of this place is today a protected site in the province of Buenos Aires, which was created in 2004 to protect those monuments dating back about 7,000 years,” said Retamoso.
He also highlighted the existence of “Salvatore” scelidoterium, which – combined with the discovery of its footprints and the robust mobilization of Montehermoseños – allowed the museum to be present today in the place it is.
