My kids and I really enjoyed this park. They loved finding all the sculptures although they did get a little frustrated that they were not numbered so they could check them off their maps. Wear sensible shoes, its a lot of walking on uneven ground.

This place is incredible. The stone carvings were amazing. It would be a fun place to go with children as well.

It´s a bizarre park, quite in middle of nothing -thus pretty difficult to arrive without a car- but worth the stop if you´re around. Nature in the park is pretty wild and everywhere you turn you find a rock sculpture with "messages". Has pretty steep...More

This was a wonderful place and I'm sure it is great for children. We were a group of 6 adults and we found this very enjoyable. It was on the small side and the only reason I say that is because once we saw everything,...More

I really recommend visiting this wonderful park. You won't see anything like it anywhere else. Stone monsters and mythical figures in a glorious setting - with donkeys! It's fabulous. Practicalities- it's quite expensive (but worth it), there are good facilities for children and use the...More
