  • We stick a pateo in car to arrive. And arriving we discovered we had to pay input, I think 5 or 6 euros per adult. Finally do not enter because it was late and we had diverted us enough dd our way to visit the place.

  • We visited the Ciudad encantada with receptive basin, and it is essential if you want to learn something. Only otherwise you'll see rocks

  • Cuenca, in Castile-La Mancha in central Spain is famous for its hanging houses), but tear yourself away from admiring precipitous architecture to be awestruck by rock formations that make you think 'how on earth did those get there? Resembling giant mushrooms, put there by a creative, slightly psychadelic god, these natural monuments actually owe their appearance to erosion (sorry, boring)
  • Splendid.
  • Great place to explore
  • I went a couple of times and I have always loved the shape of the rocks. It seems to me that paying for a ride in beautiful natural landscape is one the best activities that can be done, clear is that there are who want to pay to go cups or tops which everyone is entitled. For the price they charge also say that they might have a little better place conditioning and signs, as there was in the narrow passage where you poke your head and see the stone sea many cigarette butts, a shame as well as unpleasant. You have some great pictures and great memories of Cuenca, I definitely recommend it. Please wear comfortable shoes and if it's sunny CAP, if there is possibility of rain certainly take umbrella.

  • It is not so. I remember it better years ago. The rock formations are well, but charge €5 for entry and it is a short walk from 1 h and a half. It is a place that should be of the State, not of a private company. It is far, it must be reached by own car. And the restaurant's next door is expensive (cheapest menu €12). Stone remainders are not monitored at all, so once inside anyone can do vandalism without supervision. A penalty.
