El Tornillo In The Torcal de Antequera Nature Park In Spain

I came across my Spanish word of the day, el tornillo, while reading A Labyrinth Of Rocks at one of the Eye On Spain blogs called Who Said That?  Who Did That?  Torcal is a limestone mountain range in which erosion has created many fantastically-shaped rocks.  One such rock has been named El Tornillo because it looks like giant screw partially threaded into the earth.  If you would like to see some photos of El Tornillo and read about the Torcal Mountains, go to Eye On Spain and look for the January 25, 2018 post at Who Said That?  Who Did That?

¡Hasta pronto!
