El Anfinteatro is a place everyone visits when passing. And there is a reason for that. Do it in the late afternoon, so the sun enters inside. Great atmosphere with a life musician!

Las Tres Cruces

Reviewed By NGPAT - Inverness, United Kingdom

You will stop a lot driving the route 68 through this valley. This is one of the best places to take time out. Make time to walk up the short hill (2 minutes) from the car park area to get the full view available of mountains, river bed, and winding road.
