Monfragüe National Park


Description

You'll suddenly find yourself surrounded by holm oaks and cork trees. You're in the Monfragüe National Park, an example of Mediterranean scrubland in the form of a valley crisscrossed by the Tagus and Tiétar rivers. It is extremely popular with sightseers because of the opportunities it offers for birdwatching. There is one special place no visitor should miss: the 'Salto del Gitano', or 'Gypsy's leap': an observation point perched on a cliff 300 metres high. What animals can you find there? It is home to the world's largest colony of black vultures, and has its highest concentration of imperial eagles. The chance to see the majestic flight of the extremely rare imperial eagle is an experience you'll never forget. What's on offer in the park? Guided routes on foot and by road, and guided visits at the weekends. Another suggestion: the rock paintings in the El Castillo cave. If you're travelling with the family, ask about the special routes for doing with children.
