These sites are a great source of scientific and cultural knowledge (Europa press)

Since the beginning of time, the Earth went through different stages during which different forms of life developed. Evidence of these events is found preserved in the interior of the planetand continue to be necessary to understand the history of humanity and the emergence of life.

There are certain places where you can see the pass of the time in all its glory. Visiting them can satisfy even the most curious people who want to know everything about the science that is responsible for studying these wonderful events.

This list contains the best 5 places to soak up scientific knowledge.

More than 2,600 dinosaur footprints were found in the park (Grosby)

In the area that includes this park, thousands of dinosaur footprints that were preserved over time in the form of fossils that reach the 200 million years. It has around 2,600 individual brands caused by the feet of extinct reptiles.

Some of them were buried to prevent deterioration, but around 800 are currently on display, along with information on the early Jurassic and other stages of the Mesozoic era. It is one of the footprint reservoirs larger from North America.

This site located in the Argentine province of Santa Cruzexposes paintings made by the people who lived in the area around 10,000 years. Inside the cave you can admire these works that represent outlines of hands and drawings of animals like guanacos

Shows the presence of the hunter-gatherer populations of the region prior to European colonization that began in 1492. UNESCO declared it as World Heritage Site in 1999.

The park’s mountains were studied by scientist Charles Darwin (iStock)

Charles Darwin, recognized for his theory of evolution, was not just a biologist. The scientist also studied the composition of the land and the formation of certain geographical features. In 1831 he traveled with one of his geology professors through the Carneddau mountains from Snowdonia, Wales. On his tour he learned about this wonderful place and incorporated study techniques that he later used in his later trip to the Galapagos Islands.

In this park, where Darwin studied, you can see the way in which the passage of millions of years modified the terrain through the glacial activity and volcanic.

Thanks to that, today you can see wonderful landscapes made up of sedimentary rocks and accumulations of volcanic material. The highest mountain in all of Wales, Snowdon, with 1085 meters high, It is located in this park.

The Kuelap structures are evidence of how past cultures lived

This archaeological site was originally an area full of temples built by the Cachapoyas culture, who preceded the Inca civilization. The walls present in this place exceed 20 meters high and there are a large number of structures where religious rituals and tombs were carried out, as well as homes.

The buildings are located at the top of Cerro Barreta a 3,000 meters above sea level, and are evidence of the high organization and levels of planning that this town had, previously and during the Inca occupation who suffered.

It’s a culture reservoir of humanity that shows behaviors of past civilizations.

In this vast desert, hundreds of fossils belonging to dinosaurs were found (Grosby)

The Badlands of Alberta are a stunning geological spectacle that offers a window to the prehistoric past from the earth. The geology of the Badlands reveals the earth historywith exposed sediment layers dating back to millions of yearswhen this area was covered by shallow seas and delta habitats.

In addition to its fascinating geology, the Badlands of Alberta are known for being a important paleontological site. Fossil remains of dinosaurs have been discovered in abundance in this region, leading to it being nicknamed “Canada’s dinosaur graveyard”.

Paleontologists found a wide variety of dinosaur species, including the Tyrannosaurus rex and the Triceratops, providing valuable insights into ancient life on Earth. Some of them can be seen at the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology.
