Welcome to Loma Plata
A more accessible base for exploring the surrounding Chaco than Filadelifa, Loma Plata is well-placed for day trips into the wilderness. As the administrative center of Menno Colony, it is the oldest and most traditional of the Mennonite settlements, but while the town is quietly efficient, there isn't a lot to do besides visit the small history museum. A replica quebracho tree on the roundabout at the southern entrance to town represents the tree to which the first settlers nailed a plaque when founding the colony. The original tree, located outside the town, has long since been bulldozed to make way for agriculture.
The rambling Cooperativa Supermarket is worth a visit for an insight into Mennonite life.
