Monfrague National Park, Caceres

4.8
#1 of 29 in Parks in Extremadura
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.

  • Amazing location for the great raptors of Europe. We got amazing views on Griffon Vultures, Imperial and Bonelis Eagles. Black Stork and more. High recommended for true birdwatchers.  more »
  • We paid the visit by car. We walked the path of all the viewpoints, we start with the viewpoint of the Tiétar hatch. It was a sunny day with some wind. There were many birds of prey that were in flight (Black Vulture, Griffon Vulture, an imperial Eagle). A spectacle of nature. We continue along the road towards San Carlos Villarreal and we were making stop at all the viewpoints (viewpoint of the Tajadilla, the viewpoint of the Malvavuelta, the viewpoint of the scale, the mirador de la Higuerilla, the mirador de la Fresneda), happening one after another. From Villarreal of San Carlos continue to the viewpoint of the jump of the Roma (where there were again Raptors in flight) and finally to the height of the castle of Monfragüe, from where there is a privileged view. It was a great day that I recommend to everyone.

  • Being in Cáceres is a must-visit place. A Natural Park with capital letters. It boasts an amazing colony of vultures, including black vultures, which are to a large extent on a cliff (the Gypsy jump). There are many times good to visit the Park. Animals tend to be most active first thing in the morning and in the evening. A time which is incredible visit it is coinciding with the bellowing (about October), when the calls of the males of the deer are multiplied and amplified due to the orography of the land
