The Piracés escarpments are strikingly beautiful. They have been forged by the erosive action of the wind in a terrain formed by rocks, sandstone and clay deposits, sediments from the Tertiary Era.
Some of the formations received names like Uncle George or Grandfather Roque, because they looked like an old man wearing a beret. The most spectacular, without a doubt, is the Piedra del Mediodía (the Midday Stone). It is a huge rectangular rock that used to be an Arab castle in the past. The most unique thing about this rock is that the sun’s rays illuminate it at midday, hence, its name.
