“The Finestras Wall of China leaves you speechless. It’s definitely one of the most spectacular places I’ve ever seen. It’s worth following the little trail up to the castle-cum-hermitage.” Juan de Dios González Martín
The rocky wall is a geological marvel from the Cretaceous period, made of limestone. It’s different layers, created by tectonic forces, have been eroded over thousands of years.
The result is two parallel, vertical walls: unforgettable for anyone who sees them. And behind them, the ruins of a mediaeval castle and San Vicente hermitage.
This whim of Mother Nature reminds us that no one is a patch on her at creating such complex and beautiful places.
If you want a unique view of the wall, you can climb up to the viewpoint at San Marcos hermitage, a well-kept church, which is open to the public.
Cross the deserted village, follow the marked path up to the wall and then follow the trail, which will take you to the prettiest places.
Take your time to soak up the beauty around you, breathe the pure air and feel a connection to this magical place amid protected nature spots.
