Monfrague National Park, Caceres
(4.7/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
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. Monfrague National Park is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Caceres Edition.

  • Despite being a landscape intervened by man, its footprint has generated greater diversity to the existing. Worth a sit anywhere and, closing his eyes, feel with the rest of the senses. Pure magic!.

  • This is the best natural park that I have never been. Monfragüe is a relaxing place where take a breath of fresh air with an extraordinary variety of animals and plant species. I advice you to visit Monfragüe and enjoy yourself or together your family of this beautiful location.
  • National park is must to see in Spain, especially in the month of Mai. There were flowers everywhere. It was really fantastic. Behind Villareal de San Carlos is a nice walking path. It's really enjoyable. It takes about one hour walk among the flowers, trees and birds. The nature is really beautiful. Be careful. There is usually more hot than in other parts of Spain. Obligatory stop also at the rock Salto del Gitano. The park is heaven for birdwatchers.
  • Just great! A real wild life! Griffons (huge birds) are abundant!
  • Wonderful nature reserve with lot's of excellent places to watch birds and mammals
  • Beautiful surroundings. Black flying between the Gorges vultures
