Monfrague National Park offers impressive views, as it contains a ridge of mountains cut by a river with a rock face called Peñafalcón. It covers 18 hectares (45 acres). Birdwatchers come here in droves, as 15 different species of raptors regularly breed here. Keep an eye out for the black stork, Spanish imperial eagle, and the azure-winged magpie. To really catch the best views, leave the car in the parking area and walk up the main hill.

  • It is difficult to combine if you go with guidance, because they teach it to you through the interpretation center with what you lose nature, they look at you and say, that it is very high, far, that there is no time... you'd better go with teammates and without a guide, you'll enjoy it.

  • In May when the sun still doesn't squeeze, it's a great place to visit. With many easy and difficult routes, with tranquility to walk. We went to information in Villareal de San Carlos and there we were told several routes to do. We made a simple one coming out of the same town. It is necessary to visit the gypsy jump and go to observe the birds. We saw nests with black stork breeding, we fell in love. We went with binoculars, but there were "professional" amateurs there in bird watching and one of them kindly showed us the nest. Don't miss it.
