  • It's a great place to stay. There are three places where you can rent a boat, but it's only 11am, so it's crowded. It's a very nice place to stay.

  • A beautiful and soothing site of lagoon blue colors and on the heights the waltz of the vultures above the extraordinary gorges. To discover with I its small villages on the side of rocks where you can also eat for a very decent price and well served.
