Monasterio de Piedra_Pie de la Cola de Caballo_2
Spain
El río Piedra forma, al pasar por las inmediaciones del monasterio, un paraje de gran belleza paisajística, con muchas cascadas de agua que se dividen en innumerables hilos de agua o chorreras, siendo la cascada de la Cola del Caballo, con más de 50 m., la de mayor altura e interés. Unos senderos debidamente señalizados conducen por todo el parque, a lo largo de unos 5 km, a todos los sitios de interés del mismo. Estas cascadas están formadas por la disolución de las calizas y la posterior precipitación de las mismas la cual ocurre al disminuir el caudal, con lo que la caliza disuelta va depositándose en capas sucesivas por las que discurre el agua formando innumerables saltos. Se trata de un fenómeno cárstico originado por las ligeras fluctuaciones en el propio caudal del río. El parque también cuenta con varias grutas, descubiertas por el fundador del parque. Allí también se encuentra el llamado Lago Espejo. Recientemente, se pueden presenciar en las inmediaciones del parque espectáculos con aves, entre las que se encuentran lechuzas, águilas, buitres, búhos y alimoches.

More About Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights. In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states. Text by Steve Smith.
