A comfortable and nice excursion, to a little crowded place, that will transfer you to another era. Silence will go with the feeling of vertigo and emptiness that leads to these curious formations which, once upon a time, were the habitat of our most famous dinosaur, the Concavenator Corcovatus.

The place hides curious legends that our guides will tell you

The Torcas are circular depressions caused by the sinking of the Cretaceous soil on caves of the Jurassic period. When these depressions go beyond the water table they give rise to small lagoons that hide microhabitats where some protected species reside and breed. and we will know why the striking change of color that occurs in its waters with the change of the seasons.

On the way from Las Torcas to Las Lagunas, we will stop to contemplate two of the eldest trees of La Serrania Conquense, Pino Abuelo and Pino Candelabro, two individuals from Pino Negral.
