There are many professionals who work in this area and we will have the pleasure of dealing with them but not only with them, with all of us
For the most skeptics, if there is not enough water in the Sierra we will move towards the Pyrenees a few kilometers from the meeting place, another area full of canyons
il Mascún, le Gorgas Negras, la Peonera, il Vero e il Balced are only some of the very famous canyons
