The nature of Extremadura

Monfragüe National Park is a beautiful reserve and in fact, one of the last unspoiled ecosystems remaining in Europe. The rivers Tajo and Tietar have poured into the soil of this area for hundreds of years, creating a flourishing biodiversity of animals and plants. A stunning canyon with vertical rocks as high as hundreds of meters in some points has been created while the rivers have carved the hills here.

Tagus Natural Park is an international frontier territory which includes the surrounding areas along the shores of river Tagus – the longest river on the Iberian Peninsula. The ecological significance of this area is exceptional! The Tagus River together with its 5 subsidiaries have shaped a beautiful canyon in between the rocks, covered in lush vegetation and typical Mediterranean trees. Spain and Portugal both manage this Biosphere Reserve together upon agreement. When you visit this natural park, definitely don’t miss to check out the viewpoints!

La Siberia is the third biosphere reserve in Extremadura. It presents a stunning landscape of pastures, plains, mountains and hills, lakes and rivers. The biodiversity on the premises of La Siberia is astonishing. Cijara Regional Reserve is also part of it! It is a vast protected area serving as a habitat for numerous animal species such as red deer and roe deer, golden eagles and even black storks.
