Walking here you see a lot of ruins and the colors of the rocks are orange, beige, etc. I wouldn't want to be here in the summer, would be very hot.

Interesting story with a great architectural legacy. Easy to reach with a cable car or on foot (moderately hard). You can refill water bottles near the entrance and on the site itself.
