    You must know exactly what you are about to see - this is not a tourist trap, but... alomst!

    I read somewhere that this place was very similar to Capadoccia. Well, Capadoccia is fabulous, and that drove me to the place, for a disappointment. The comparison is absurd. This is a trail in nature, 3 Km long, with a few strange rock formations.

    If you are aware of that, then you will appreciate it, because it is an easy trail, and one of the most interesting that I have seen.
    If you expect more than that...

    The Enchanted City

    by DanielF Written Sep 5, 2002
    This rock is called, obviously, the arch

    The Ciudad Encantada (Enchanted City) is an amazing place. Wind and water have modelled the rocks for centuries in fantastic shapes.

    Why do I put this tip under "tourtist traps"? It is not because you do have to pay to go inside (€ 3 is not much after all), but it is because the names they have given to the different rocks will make you laugh some times. It is like if they had been fleeping after smoking something and then they named the rocks after their halluciantions.

    Unique Suggestions: You do have to go to the Ciudad Encantada. You won't regret it.

    We finally arrive to El Tormo, the most famous rock formation in the whole Enchanted City: a tall monolith that stands precariously on a really narrow base.

    From which perspective am I supposed to see a dog? See it how you want I definitely don't see any dog. This is a real tourist trap and I want my money back!

    The convent

    by DanielF Written Sep 5, 2002

    Who copied who? Has the nature made a perfect copy of a Gothic arch here, or did the architects get their inspiration from the Enchanted city?
