A lovely walk around fascinating rock formations. It was fun working out which rock was which, some more obvious than others. We also enjoyed naming some of the formations that were there but with no name. Great place to spend a couple of hours. Wear...More

This was a nice walk. It was not difficult but for disabled it would be difficult. The surroundings and the rock formations are lovely.

Well worth a gentle drive out from Cuenca. Very reasonable cost and a 1-2hr walk through these amazing rock formations. Plenty free parking a nice car/bar/restaurant across the road to chill for a bit before leaving. Recommended!

35 mins up into the mountains beyond Cuenca. Winding but a good two lane road all the way. Ample parking. Toilets and gift shop/snacks. 5 euros each to enter the ‘Ciudad’ which is a fabulous 3km trail through the most amazing rock formations. Well worth...More
