Looks like a really neat place. I love hollow rocks, actually I have a strange affinity and love of all rocks. I wish i owned an area with a big rock
to carve or hollow out!
In the province of Barcelona lies one of the most magical and mysterious places in the peninsula, Orrius forest. Going into this forest, which for many is haunted, is like stepping into a magical world of legends, of strange figures carved in stone, goblins, and even mysterious covens.
Following the forest trail, we will find different figures carved in rock, from a giant elephant, to heads of people who try to emulate the head's of the Maya, including a moai (the big heads we can find in the Chilean Easter Island).
It is said that the architects of these sculptures were local artists and we can see their signature on a stone near the Elephant. He speculates that these sculptures would like to convey some sort of cryptic message as two different rocks were chosen, then he carved the two images on the same stone, this leads us to believe in the importance and it’s attachment to the mythological thinking spatial boundaries with special deities of bounds, like the Roman god of boundaries, Janus, the deity of the entrances and exits, doors and beginnings : the first month of the year (Ianua ~ rius, January). Among the Greeks Hermes was the god of boundaries: "At the crossroads, at the gates of the cities and houses in the locks, Hermes takes the limit of the places the border of domains ..." was also the protector of the roads and the god of the crossroads. Perhaps these figures are just at the entrance of the road for this reason, or maybe its coincidence ... The elephant also has its symbols as a symbol of strength and power, not only physically but also mentally and spiritually. Yoga assimilates the chakra Muladhara, earth element, the domain of real focus on the directions of terrestrial space.

Apparently the artist's who carved the figures didnt want any type of publicity.
One of them, still lives in a town near me, apparently.
There's also talk of Ufo sighting's.
Would love to hear more of the folklore and stories
Animal sacrifices are not necessarily [historically] satanic worship.
