Monfrague National Park, Caceres

(600+ reviews on the web)
National Park
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.

  • A beautiful landscape, where you appreciate the nature and you can see the vultures and the river that runs through the Park

  • You can go with young children since the Park you can visit it at car perfectly. We left the car in the only parking in the jump from the Gypsy, and there is a climb of stairs about 10 minutes to the Castle. Above you can see Griffon Vultures and the views are very beautiful. The Park has 2 routes one of 8km to the jump of the Gypsy, and the other of about 12 km, in which there are different viewpoints that you can simply stop, look and make some pictures: tajadilla, higuera lla, etc. There are picnic areas in case someone wants to eat there, if only we saw somewhere drinks in villareal de san Carlos, where is the information booth and a stall in the Castle.
