The Monasterio de Piedra Park is one of the most beautiful places I’ve been in. I had seen some pictures on the internet, but it is one of those places that you have to see for yourself. I was really surprised.
It is huge, and every corner has something interesting, the waterfalls and lakes, with such a big volume of water, even in the summertime, are amazing. You go by foot, and it takes you a few hours to complete it, but you find toilets along the way.
The waterfalls at the beginning of the park, the famous Cola de Caballo waterfall, the cave, the lake with the cliff, the Egyptian vulture flying by…so many fantastic different atmospheres in a few kilometers, it is amazing.
You have to see a falconry show, which they organize daily in the morning and afternoon before going inside the park. You see many kinds of great birds and they give interesting explanations.
The place is quite chilly, even in the summertime, because of the exuberance of the vegetation. The worst part is that sometimes it gets crowded with people.
This cave is situated in the park of the monastery of Piedra. It was discovered when they were trying to make a well. The interesting thing about this cave is that as well as stalactites and stalagmites, the drops of water fall on its entry, acquiring thousands of colours, depending on how the sunlight filters in. You must see it, it is a fantastic and beautiful part of nature. Cottages Nuévalos http://www.Toprural.Com/aragon/zaragoza/casas-rurales-nuevalos_rm-es-50192.htm
We went to visit the Natural Park of the Monasterio de Piedra, and arrived at the Bath of Diana, a part of the river, after a small waterfall, which forms a lagoon where we wanted to do as Diana did and take a dip in such clean waters. Under the cover of trees, the only thing left to do is to enjoy the views and tranquility.
Like the title of the book by the famous Brazilian author, "By the River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept", in our case, rather than sitting and mourning, we were guided by the layout of this beautiful water course that runs from the province of Zaragoza and has shaped canyons, waterfalls, caves, and a long list geographical accidents which culminate in the Natural Park of the Monasterio de Piedra. They say their water has the power to petrify any tree and sculpt beautiful and incredible figures, hence its name. On our walk around the monastery that bears its name, we played the amazing crystal waters many times. We froze, but if he left an indelible mark on us that keeps us coming back to visit as soon as we can.
