The animal inhabitants of Parque de la Naturaleza de Cabarceno roam the grounds mostly free, with the exception of some protected enclosures. This is a research center. While you enjoy walks through the 750 hectares (1,900 acres) and meals at the themed restaurants scattered throughout the grounds, scientists are observing the animals and plants. Visit the educational center to learn about the park's beginning as a reclaimed former iron mine, see and take part in experiments, and practice living with fewer resources, like our Paleolithic ancestors.
