The natural reservation area of ‘The garden of the dragons’ is a geological structure of rocks formed through the natural breaking off of huge blocks of sandstone. The reservation covers an area of about three hectares, is unique in the world and impresses with its appearance and complexity of the cliffs.
Almaş, the reservation is a vast phenomenon of destructive destruction and erosion, developed in the so-called Sânmihaiu tiles. This is a relatively weak cement, with gravel and conglomerate intercalations. The formations here arose by the separation of blocks or compartments of sandstone from the massif that constitutes the hill Vchieturi (376 m) and their sliding on the base clays. On the whole, stony formations form a strange chaotic puddle, but the more beautiful and interesting, which extends to about five hectares. The area was named, in a period, the Cheturi, perhaps a reference to the hill from which they were separated.
Each rock has a name and carries a legend.
The rocks are called: Cătanii Girl, The dragon, The dragon’s wife, The old man, The Monks, The Captain, The Soldiers, Eva, Dorobant, Little finger, Sphinx, with bizarre shapes (towers, mushrooms, pins, rocky abrupts), formed by the action of air , wind, temperature), water (washing, drainage) and gravitational processes (crashes, drops).
