Human presence in the Torcal goes back to prehistory and even Roman remains have been found to testify that he was used as a quarry for the construction of the nearby towns.

The karst landscape is the masterpiece of the elements. The brush of wind and sand have been water in the limestone carving fanciful shapes that rise above the region.
