Complejo El Zapato, Capilla del Monte
(1/5 based on 180+ reviews on the web)
Legend has it that hundreds of years ago, on every thirteenth moon, Indian chiefs, shamans, and healers would gather under Complejo El Zapato, which was shaped by wind and erosion in the recognizable form of a shoe. "The Shoe" clearly stands out among other granite rocks in this rugged and imposing mountain terrain. Look for a cave and a fountain next to the stone steps at the foot of the rock. Climb to the top of the rock for scenic views of the surroundings, including the Dolores River and the dam. A giant slide and a zipline will attract adventurous souls, while the rest can chill and grab a bite at a restaurant. For a memento to bring home, visit the crafts fair.

  • I put a 3 by the formation itself and the views of the El Cajon dam which are obtained from the back. Gave me a bit of feeling sad the abandoned is the complex in general... few posts (I don't know if maybe in the summer open one), everything had extra old and in poor condition. The rocks all written that take you your natural charm. A penalty.

  • Very nice ride make to flia already that does not require too much effort the rise. An incredible view and the photo with the donkey "Maria Julia" inevitable! A sweet.

  • The shoe is a picturesque and accessible. The attraction itself is the environment. Walking slightly behind one gets to have beautiful views of the dam the drawer. If one is walking it is accessible from the Center. A little walking is the wall of the dam. I recommend pies that sold opposite the complex.
