Two walking tours are open from February to December. They cross the ancient quarries with remains scattered around the edges of the orange, red and yellow hills and the forest with breathtaking views of the Fairy Chimneys and other geological curiosities.

Cycling is forbidden in the site, fragile, we invite you to leave it in the parking lot; departure of the circuits on foot.
