Formed by two huge rocks (San Miguel and Amman) separated by the river Flumen, they constitute an attractive landscape closely linked to oscenses and his shield.

According to legend, the French nobleman with his horse Roldán jump from one to another rock to escape their enemies. In times of the reconquest there were two Muslim castles located in each of the big boulders, called Sen and Men. Still remain the ruins of the largest Mallo Sen.

The Cliffs of both rocks serve as shelter for a large colony of vultures.
