  • Beautiful hike! We stayed in this place 6: 00 and could still have stayed... All these stunts. .. It is grandiose. .. Go to the end of the world. .. your effort will be rewarded by the panorama! 4 euros for parking. .. It is justified!

  • The circus is impressive and allows you to do several hikes. Too bad that it need pay 4 euros for the parking, as we stay 30 minutes or several hours.
