    It is a place with great charm. There are hiking trails, and canoes by the Duratón routes, although we did not have time to make any. Recommended visit

    Unique environment in which you will enjoy one day in the dugout, with fabulous views, where you'll see cannons of the Gorges from more than 100 meters high... as well as enjoying the colony of Griffon Vultures, which is the largest in Europe... Ideal to spend the day with family, in addition to the fabulous views, you can enjoying a dip to cool off, I highly recommend it, we go every year and as I say is worth, it is a unique environment!

    It is very nice. This year they have fixed accesses so the car suffers less. The river is very beautiful with green and blue tones. The vultures in the walls are. The landscape is impressive.

  • Super pretty! After driving a path were you must be patient...The views are breathtaking!
  • It's nothing special there except for the cliffs and the monastery. However, you can take a peaceful walk along a river.
  • Amazing natural park with lots of vultures nesting on the cliffs. We did a canoe route with a local guide (in Spanish only) that was just amazing.
  • A spectacular gorge and river running through this beautiful natural park. Lots of trails for walking which take you up and close to the vultures which nest on the cliff tops. Also great for picnics alongside the river in spring and summer.
  • Great landscape with a lot of wildlife
