  • The rock forms are produced by differential erosion of materials that form them, being easier to erode in its lower part. The resulting morphologies resemble rock mushrooms, very photogenic. We must not pay input, and is a small enclosure next to the road, within easy reach. On the way to or from Perperikon is a recommended stop to have some different pictures. Some minerals at a small table where they are exposed are sold next to the enclave. Nothing out of the ordinary.

  • Represents the natural monument-natural phenomenon-resembling enlarged petrified mushrooms. It's worth a visit. Good place for pictures. Can be combined with a visit to the perperikon. There is a junction in the vicinity, which can be parked. The entrance is free.
