  • The way to arrive is gravel. The place is a castle-shaped rock formation. Nothing else. You get you pictures and regresás.

  • These rock formations were created for thousands of years, give a unique spectacle, to enjoy it to the fullest with the trekking reaching base and cave castle and upper partte... also alrmorzar lamb or goat Ranch/restaurant that is located at the entrance of the place. To spend the day!

  • Bellisimo
  • Inexplicable
  • Beautiful view from the top. Most people only go to the cave but raise up above is the best view of all. I recommend making an effort and climb to the top

  • Wonderful place. Excellent food. Don't forget to make the walk to the cave

  • They must realise that to know it must pay $100. I didn't like this topic, because it shows there was a political settlement in this award. The place is very cute, but first you pay!
