  • Great natural monument. It feels amazing to walk next to the dinosaur footprints.
  • Very interesting place to visit if you like dinosaurs and archeology, it's very hot and dry during summer, bring hats and water!
  • More than 1000 dinosaurs footsteps. However, during summer months it is very hot, so would recommend checking weather before planning to visit. Beautiful views of the valley as well.
  • Former quarry, museum open to the public since 1997. One of the few places in the world where it is possible to see footprints of dinosaurs. Recommended for children.
