The light beige limestone tuff from the Runà spring, which can be seen well from the road, is reminiscent of a desert landscape.

Description

After the spring had emerged at various locations, it has a higher fill at its present location, which has since formed an enormous spring tuff and continues to grow.

Since there is no catchment, the water cannot be tasted.
