  • Great place to relax your mind the chaos of the big city. Super intriguing and mysterious. Go prepared to March, because it has many climbs and loose rocks. It's worth it.

  • This beyond a shadow of a doubt is the best place to see the stars in the night sky, is excellent, you can see a lot of stars in the sky, which in the middle of the city is very difficult.
