  • A spectacular mountain, a lot more than it seems on the information that is on the internet. It is not difficult to reach by public bus, and is very cheap, but need to know that for some reason some stop before arriving at a small station, and take another bus from the same line to follow to the same ticket office. A whole mountain dismantled in some cataclysmic earthquakes, and whose landslide closed the Valley creating the reservoir. The Park comprises a series of paths and stairways that meander between the huge blocks product of earthmoving, going through caves between blocks and formations quite spectacular. If you want to do the full tour, rises to the Summit of mountain by stairs which at times are rather durillas, and can be downloaded on the other hand until the door out, being surrounded at all times by spectacular views of the mountains. It can be without cansanse too if you arrive early and take calmly. It is possible to reach reservoir and the base of the Park by car or bus in summer, or it can be giving a smooth ride of an hour more or less. As a curiosity, it is very shocking that there is wifi in the middle of the mountain, and if you like geology, this is a paradise.
