Two limestone gorges in the Trascãu mountains. The steep slopes are partially covered by herbs, bushes and Pinus trees. Quercus, Fagus and Carpinus dominated woodlands, grasslands and hay-meadows also occur. The surrounds are used for agriculture and cattle-grazing, with tourism in the gorges.
This is an important area for breeding raptors, forest species and birds associated with rocky habitats.
