This is a truly spectacular walking route. We climbed the ruta de los cazadores, about 2 hours going uphill which was rather difficult, we kept on and eventually arrived at the horses tail, an impressive waterfall. The way back was easier, and we made multiple stops. Magnificent landscape.
An amazing place to discover. Nature in its greatest expression. I loved it, and never saw anything like it. I would call it City of Stone. There is also a great monastery with a hotel and a really nice spa where you can relax after a nice walking through nature.
The legend says that the devil made mischief in these parts. La Peña, or Mirador, del Diablo is a spectacular setting in the Monasterio de Piedra park that offers breathtaking views of the "Horse Tail" waterfall or the dreamy "Mirror Lake". The legends and fantasies further enrich the fame and beauty of this mystical and otherworldly place. Supposedly the monks of the monastery, one day, "released" the most unfortunate and destitute woman who was "strangely possessed," and wanted to seek revenge and burn the convent. The monks had no choice but to pray. Meanwhile, the Devil decided to conduct his own affairs and sought to throw an impressive stone on top of the monastery. But when the bells started ringing, the Devil suddenly fell off because he got scared. The stone fell to the spot where it now stands as the rock of the devil. These legends amaze me.
