FUN IN THE FOREST
Its beauty is due to the passage of time. In its formation were discovered some impressive caverns located on the roof of the arch.
Its walls of up to 40 m high have capricious geological formations with stalactites and stalagmites of calcareous rock that resemble large bones.
These walls are a paradise for rock climbing, where there are already some armed routes of sport climbing, which ascend by hard collapses. From the top of the arch you can practice rappelling.
The place is framed by abundant and variable vegetation and numerous fauna.
His name owes a dramatic story, which tells that the French soldier Jean Francoise D'Arcotete was in love with a beautiful lady San Cristobal, but knowing that he would not correspond and that on the contrary, was about to marry, decided to end with his life near the cave where an underground river crosses. Since then, the sharpest stone that simulates a face at the bottom of the cave is the image of the Frenchman who left his country and his life for a woman. The natives of the area say that the ghost of the Frenchman appears at night in February, sitting on one of the rocks at the entrance of the cave, crying for his beloved.
