  • Taking advantage of the visit of a family member from outside, we decided to visit this natural area. I've never been here before, and I was very surprised. It's a shame I'm not so well known among the huelva people.

  • From the Visitor Reception Center of the Ice Factory, we took a barge, called "la Olga", which brought us to the other bank of the Guadalquivir River. There, we climbed in an SUV and began the visit itself. The guide demonstrated an in-depth knowledge of the Park, both of its history, as of the ecosystems that form it, flora and fauna, and was a fundamental part, because it transmitted in a didactic way very enriching contents. That day, we were very lucky and saw numerous species of animals such as deer and deer that grazed and sought the shadow of the vera, wild boars, marismeño horses, mostrenca cows and a wide variety of birds, especially in the beach areas. Time flew by, because you enjoy yourself as a child contemplating the extreme beauty of the landscape, cared for and protected, although not without the risks of human origin. I say this, because nowhere like in a natural park is the contrast that pollution produces. The beaches of the park, despite the conservation and cleaning work that takes place, showed a lot of plastic waste of all kinds that drag the innocent tides. Therefore, the value of such a unique space, not only requires our visit, if we think about its future maintenance; It should also serve to raise our consciousness and engage in behavior that promotes and preserves these essential places for life on Earth. The route continued with a visit to the Iron Village where another guide explained to us the forms of population, uses and human exploitations that this area had. In the end, the tour is completed with a beautiful boat trip, as a closure, very relaxing, after a visit full of emotions.
