Werner Jaisli constructed the 'ovniport' after claiming to have received a 'telepathic message' from aliens.
Consisting of a circle of white and brown rocks shaped like a star, the unusual 'landing pad' measures approximately 48 meters in diameter and is situated in the small town of Cachi in the province of Salta.
According to Jaisli, he was instructed to build the feature during an encounter with extraterrestrials.
"They landed about 100 meters above our heads and projected on us a beam of light that made us both see their own brightness," he told local newspaper El Tribuno.
"The funny thing is that it did not affect our vision. Something began to bubble through my brain: it was an order. They asked me telepathically to build the airport."
It took him a total of four years to fully complete the structure.
Since then, it has remained a popular tourist attraction as well as a hotspot for UFO enthusiasts
To date, however, no UFOs are thought to have ever landed there.
