Long Description:
Un bufón es una formación kárstica que consiste en un orificio vertical formado a pocos metros del borde de un acantilado de roca caliza y que inferiormente comunica con el mar. Cuando la marea sube y las olas baten con fuerza, expulsa hacia arriba un chorro de agua de mar pulverizada, lo que provoca un sonido característico que es lo que le da el nombre de bufón. La columna de agua pulverizada puede alcanzar más de 10 metros de altura y el bufido oirse a varios kilómetros.

Translation from Google:
A jester is a karst formation that consists of a vertical hole formed a few meters from the edge of a limestone cliff and that internally connect with the sea. When the tide rises and the waves beat strongly, it expels a jet of pulverized seawater upwards, causing a characteristic sound that is what gives it the name of jester. The column of water spray can reach more than 10 meters high and the snort can be heard for several kilometers.
