#2 of 25 in Things to do in Caceres
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 the tremendous heat logical at this time, a natural and wild setting full of incredible birds and the river Tagus imposing. The views from the Castle give you an idea of the greatness of this place

    There is no other way of defining Monfrague NP. A place certainly lost, paradise for birds of prey and for hikers. Stunning view from the Hermitage. Nature in its purest state.

    We launched we make a route through the Park. The only people that there are cars we leave. A few bars, a site enabled for school camps, an interpretation centre, and tourist office. Here you report of routes, although you can see on the Internet. It is important to indicate that there are very few areas to be able to drink water so it is essential to carry canteens. There are also enabled areas to eat. The routes are of various levels of difficulty and all should go up and down. The highlight of the visit is the Castle. You can go by car. Parking is available. From there you can see vultures and eagles on the Tagus. Throughout the park there are haven to stand with the car and see the sights and appreciate the native fauna of the area. An incredible Park to enjoy a full day. And please pick your rubbish and take care of the place.
