This is an area of very special geology that stretches nearly 50 kilometers, where the soil is especially rich in copper, iron and aluminum, bestowing it with a striking crimson hue. When the ploughed fields are interspersed with seasonal crops, the whole area becomes a vibrant patchwork of colours, framed by bright blue skies and fluffy white clouds. The hillsides resemble an giant palette of artist’s oil paints. The scenery quickly transforms into mountains, streams and villages and then single farms, crisscrossed with peaks and gullies against the background of red hills. Expect to see lots of horse, donkey and even ox-pulled carts on the road, along with herds of goats and flocks of chickens. Stock up on carrots if you want to make friends with the ponies and the donkeys. The best part about having a car and driver is that you can stop to take photos any time you wish.
