National Park
Parque Nacional de Donana, both a UNESCO World Heritage Site and an important wetland reserve, covers 543 square km (210 square mi). Iberian lynx and Spanish imperial eagles make their homes here. Note that around Pentecost, pilgrims enter the park in droves. However, access to the park is strictly controlled for tourists year-round, so all visitors see the park on an organized tour. Consider a ferry ride or boat tour to really experience this natural wonder.

  • Maybe we visited the Park at a bad time of the year but we've seen very few birds. Only storks and ducks. We would like to be notified by the staff. I'm may be difficult because coming from the Canada we are used to the big parks. Still enjoyable to take a nice walk in the open air.

  • Ciervos, gamos, jabalíes y aves entre otras muchas especies. Recomendado
  • Guy Mountfort was the prime instigator of the successful financing for purchasing land that saved the Doñana as we know it today. And yet you would never know it, unless you read various literature and references made in some official documents. It simply beggars belief that no visitor centre, no monument, no plaque or Park literature pays respect to the saviour of the land which forms the main part of this wonderful National Park. 1960 rumours were heard developers had their sights on the lands of the Doñana By 1961 these rumours were confirmed, there were plans for a holiday camp stretching the full length of the sand beaches of the Doñana and the worst was plans to drain the protective eastern barrier of the marismas! The most notable of local people to side with the crusade of saving the area were Don Manuel and Don Mauricio González, as part owners of the Coto, with much to gain financially from the proposed developments; they heroically supported efforts to preserve it. Money was needed to stem the advances of developers and Guy Mountfort mobilised support, a move that led to the renowned formation of the World Wildlife Fund. So eventually money was raised and with the support of the Spanish Government the area was purchased and the National Park came into being. Whilst local park centres and reserve areas pay tribute to local Spanish pioneers, just where is the local recognition for the hero and champion of the Doñana, Guy Mountfort? For me it is an extremely sad omission by national and local authorities alike. Be very sure, if it were not for Guy Mountfort, there would be NO Doñana!!
