Anton Valley, known to locals as simply "El Valle" (the Valley) is situated some 70 miles West of Panama City in one of the worlds largest'extinct volcanoes. This is a favorite weekend spot for locals and tourists alike. Incredible sights such as the Sleeping Indian Mountain (right) can be viewed. The legend of the mountain involves an Indian princess who fell in love with a conquistador and when her father would not allow the relationship to continue the love-sick princess laid down and died. The erosion over the years covered her.
The Petroglyphs, also known as the "Piedra Pintada" is located along a sceanic ecological walking trail. It is dated to pre-colombian times and is known to be a map of the area. Panama Jones offers side trips to see this ancient work of art during one day and over night stays in El Valle. The area of the Piedra Pintada is picturesque and refreshing with lush cloud forested scenery and waterfalls.
