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).

  • We visited San Carlos Villarreal coinciding with the international fair of Ornithology 2017. Apart from the hustle and bustle logical of this exhibition, the place is spectacular and, by luck, allows the tranquility of the traveller as, not is is overexploited. Our attitude in places like this should be integrating us, fusing with it and not to make use of it.

  • One of the 15 national parks in Spain. Located in the province of Cáceres, possesses a stunning height, as if we were one of the vultures flying their cannons.

  • On arrival it is parked because it cannot go by car, there are then two options, upload to walk or wait for a free bus that takes you to the Castle, located in the highest part of the Park. The vehicle passes each ten minutes and makes journeys of ida and turned, although I recommend return walk since is costs down and the views are very interesting. In the castle there is a small shop that sells coffee and water and there is a lookout point and a chapel. The place was visited by Alfonso XIII in the twenties of the last century. In the viewpoint could observe and take pictures of different types of vultures, flying really close and of way named.

  • 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
