  • It is worth. Stunning coves, spectacular, quiet, although a little left (there was no open Tourism Office). We will return in the summer to swim in a Cove.

  • Considering the effort required to access and spectacular views that you get to change; only I can call it a good, compared to other similar Spanish landscapes.

  • A volcanic geopark with a different but impressive, landscape with a great biodiversity which impacts. Respect of the visitors is important to prevent the deterioration of its fragile ecosystem. It has more than 1,175 plant species, of which 200 are endemic. A wonder of nature which should admire and respect. The scenery transports you to another world.
