The reds, oranges, greens, blues, greys and whites give a distinctive character to its landscapes and indicate the great richness in salts and minerals of its mountains.

The predominant reddish hue, the dryness and the hundreds of stones scattered disorderly over the ground evoke the imagery of the distant planet Mars.
