Once a large sheep estancia, the park was established in 1959 as the Parque Nacional Lago Grey. Prior to this, "baqueanos" (cowboys) grazed their flocks here and fires occasionally burnt out of control. More land was added to the park in 1962 and the name was changed to its present one. The "Torre" (Tower) Sur rises 2,900m (9,512 ft) above sea level, the Torre Central is 2,850m (9,348 ft) high, and the Torre Norte measures 2,600m (8,528 ft). The "Cuernos" (Horns) del Paine, massive blocks of various rock layers visible from great distances, are as spectacular as the towers themselves.
