Photographer's Note

At 2.720 meters ASL the Cuevas river has eroded the mountain producing a natural bridge below which there are thermal water springs. The copper-color sediments that cover the bridge turn it into an almost unreal spot. There are some remnants of an old thermal hotel.
The Legend says that the Inca King, chased by the Spanish, beg the Sun God, Inti, a way to cross the river. Inti was merciful and build him this yellow stone bridge over the waters, so the King could escape.
