The Ojos de Valdeminguete are the spring of the Júcar river, at least factual. They are located at the Fuente de San Blas, spectacular dolomite rock formations at the lower end of the narrow valley. The upper part of the valley are a dry valley, a result of underground drainage in karst. The Nacimiento del río Júcar (spring of the Júcar river) is located 2.2 km upstream along the valley, and they are reactivated only during heavy rains.

Only 1.3 km south is the Cascada del Molino de la Chorrera, a tufa waterfall of the Júcar river. It is named after the nearby watermill, which used the power of the river.
