About Las Piedrotas:

Nobody knows what is the origin of this rocks, there is just a valley in the middle of some little mountains and in the center of that valley, "Las piedrotas", in a bad translation would be The big stones. Once I heard a guy giving an explanation to a group of tourist He was saying that the stones were giants shit........ I followed him and saw him having a joint so you can imagine how trustable is his version....
