  • Recommended to take place photographs, surrounded by beautiful hills, recommended for walking by the sector and approaching the stone Indian and viewpoint

  • It is a typical monument of the area that can be done if you have plenty of free time, because actually it is recommended to go to the natural places having the region.

  • I loved that place, full of people on a very sunny day. It should be a typical attraction now that everything is ascending to take photos in the sheep.
