A visit to the Monasterio de Piedra consists of two parts, the natural park and the monastery. Notice that whilst the natural park is open all day.
The walk around the natural park area takes around two hours winding around fantastic waterfalls, lakes and caves. A particular highlight is the Cola de Caballo waterfall which falls 50m to the lake below where you can walk into the hidden Iris cave.
