It is a wonderful place to visit with friends, family or couples. It is a shame that it is not raining so much in the last months and the level of water is low, however it is a place to visit to enjoy the nature!

When the Embalses (reservoirs) were created I don't think anyone realised just what a wonderful outdoor area they were creating. The pine clad hill surrounded by beautiful turquoise lakes, simply stunning. There are a few bars and restaurants but mostly uncommercialised areas. The area is...More
