High altitude limestone moorlands, hanging synclines separated by spectacular river canyons dominate a spectacular landscape that no one leaves indifferent.

These natural fortresses have served, throughout the human history, as a refuge and protection for many peoples and cultures.

Caves, limestone cliffs, ruiniform karstic landscapes and countless waterfalls coexist with small villages that have preserved the essence of the rural environment housing large treasures in the form of Romanesque churches, rock hermitages and well preserved popular architecture.
