There we can find the highest mountain in the country: the "Cerro El Pital" (The Pital Hill) near "Las Pilas" corner with 2730m over the sea level, where we can find a variety of fruits and vegetables nonseen in another point of the country making this place, maybe, the most important vegetables source for the country.
