  • In winter is also an option, single, couple or family with children school or teenagers. Just see it from the village becomes fascinating, attracts the look while we take a coffee or some mates in a location with view of the Hill. And if we respond to his call, and climbed up the trails are of medium difficulty but accessible; forest accompanies the passage and in spring, the birds flutter above. The Bosque Tallado, obligatory stop opens in the middle of the road! and then at the end, the refuge where to drink something warm, eat to replace us and a panoramic view for extasiar us! It's worth the time.

  • We got to the shelter with the snowy path (but could be) and still SNOWING; It has no great difficulty. We were welcomed by the keeper with tranquility and good energy. . He sold us the best PIZZA with Matt that I ate in my life. At the time, the common bathroom was frozen, and opened us step up to the "dry toilet" through a few meters in the snow. We dry our clothes and get comfortable going down, we came across 4 specimens of giant Carpenter. Unforgettable.

  • Spectacular view of the snow-covered hill, you can go to the base to climb the path walking from the village because it is very close
