Farm and Quarries
BATAN QUARRIES:
The Batan’s quarries complement the farm’s green landscape, offering the contrast of the rocky foothills of Tandilia's massif. The stone that is extracted is the quartzite, also called Mar del Plata stone, very utilized in the chalets’ façade of the city.

PUNTO PANORAMICO:
Through a sinuous journey, you arrive to a panoramic point from where it is possible to observe –in its total dimension- the diverse quarries’ development (quartzite or Mar del Plata stone is extracted), the diggings or holes (a characteristic in brick making), the ovens, the ceramic factories and the farms’ cultivation (vegetables).
