Organs of Montoro (mirador de los Órganos de Montoro)

The Órganos de Montoro are a geological reference in the Maestrazgo region and, due to their beauty and accessibility, are very popular throughout the autonomous community.

The Montoro Organs are a miracle of nature. They are a magnificent example of the patient erosion of water, which has capriciously taken the shape of the organ with which man has baptized it. The river runs parallel to the direction of the limestone layers and, at the end of the section, turns sharply to cross the Organs. It then leads to the beginning of a long river canyon that almost reaches the Santolea reservoir.

It is a limestone formation of almost vertical layers where, as a result of erosion, shapes reminiscent of the pipes of a musical organ have been chiseled. They reflect the evolution of the Iberian Cordillera since this area was covered by a deep sea in the Secondary era, until the last erosive retouches that continue to occur today.

In short, a beautiful place so unique that it is worth the recognition of Natural Monument.
