The destinations included in the project are testimony of the activity of the town, past and present. Architectural heritage is defined as the set of assets inherited from the ancestors so that should be preserved and passed on to future generations. The main idea of ​​the circuit is to show visitors the sites that serve as reference and identity of tradition, culture and history of the people of Valcheta.

In this sense natural sites have been included as products of human labor. Within the category "Historic Places" is the Old School No. 15, located in San Martin street, which was created in 1905. In the same also works the school for adults No 26 and the new facility was named Benjamin Zorrilla. Railway Station is also found in Mariano Moreno street and west access road on National Road No. 23. This branch was inaugurated on April 14, 1910, was established in progress for the towns of the south. Today is a local cultural heritage and one of the most important media.
