This forest has an extension of about 800 hectares (1977 acres). This geological and paleontological site no doubt becomes a different option. It’s a full day excursion specially designed for those who enjoy contact with nature and have the desire to discover unique places. Throughout the tour the forest offers us fantastic landscapes and at times they are like from another planet.
