  • The slope of the pass, is an impressive attractive, its curves and the formation of these mountains! It is an excellent place to perform different activities outdoors, running, do mountain biking and paragliding. I did this last, and it is awesome, see those curves from above... the truth is an activity not to be missed!

  • The path is narrow with curves and cliffs. It offers viewpoints where to park. There you can enjoy the stunning view. One of them is the lyrics of the song.

  • Beautiful landscapes, a thousand shades of green, a slope that you must pass with caution, especially for those who are not accustomed to hiking trails.
