In the mountains around Cuenca very long ago different kinds of rocks were blended together. By the time the soft rocks eroded way, while the hard ones remained. This has resulted in some weird rock formations, whereof more than one looks like it has been created by human hands. In La Ciudad Encantada 30 km outside Cuenca you can see some of the most spectacular ones. This very much looks like an old man.
