This ravine is home of one of the biggest European Pistacia terebinthus woods. The seeds of this wild familiar to pistachio tree are called “granillo” locally, and now a days it is foodstuff for mountain goats and flock of sheep in this area, while in the Middle East is used to prepare “zaatar” in cookery . The appendix with horn shape (cuerno in Spanish) is a defence against insect larvae and gives the shrub its local name (corneta).
