ESCANELA RIVER –
PUENTE DE DIOS
Protected by ancient alamo trees, the crystal clear current of Escanela River descends from the heights of the Sierra. Playing with the limestone rock, it has formed two unique features: Puente de Dios (Bridge of God) and Cañón de la Angostura (Canyon of the Narrows).
Without a doubt one of the natural marvels of the Sierra Gorda, Escanela River crosses Puente de Dios, an extraordinary formation with thick stalactites from which spouts of water crash down, as well as Cañón de la Angostura, where beautiful formations make up a living rock garden. Natural pools, a scenic foot trail along the riverside, and a hike to Peña de la Gloria (a waterfall during the rainy season) will make your visit unforgettable.
