We went round this park to view the rock formations and spent some 3 hours enjoying the experience. Whilst the main attraction is the rock formations the park is also great just to be there and enjoy the walks. You will need to be fairly fit however to enjoy this attraction to its full.

This is aplce that could be compared with some formations in US-National Parks. You can walk around and admire nature`s ability to form different shapes out of rock. All kinds of shapes can be seen and you can test your own imagination by finding names for the shaped rocks you see.

Spent an interesting morning walking round these geological rock formations. Well organized and marked paths. We could see shapes in many unmarked rocks too. A good trip.

Since we stayed at Villalba de la Sierra for a couple of nights this seemed the ideal place to visit just a few miles on.

Ciudad enchanteda is a must visit when touring in the Cuenca area. The park is well kept and the visit made interesting by the descriptions for each of the huge roc formation.

We were staying in Cuenca and hired a car to visit this cool place. The rocks are all different shapes and are truly odd. It's an easy walk around the site and we took the red rout which took us an hour and a half with loads of stops for taking photos. There is no water inside so make sure... More

If you're in Cuenca (highly recommended), this is a no-brainer for a day trip. We spent over an hour wandering among the fascinating rock formations, and it would be easy to spend more time if you're inclined to go off their marked route. There is a cafe there, but it seemed very high priced with not much to offer (especially... More

Different shaped rocks all with names, mostly of animals, caused by erosion. Lots of walking but worth it. A lñovely day out.

There are some fascinating rock shapes in this geological attraction not far outside of the city of Cuenca. These huge granular rocks have been shaped by erosion. Even without paying to go into the tour area, many of the unusual rocks can be seen right in the area of the parking lot.
