  • Yes the first thing that came to mind after the first few times when we had seen a couple of cormorants and egrets and cormorants have appeared dozens of drying wings, formations of ducks and mallards to draw big v in the clear sky. Then sleeping bag on reeds in the distance the aguila de mar or Osprey (although "fishing" mice and other small beings but not fish) the category of birds prefer. Then still an expanse of mallards at anchor semi-submerged bodies dotted black cormorants while on the edges of the Reed off alter herons and egrets candide. Then a last dip within a narrow waterway in the reeds looming and with every step ducks, herons and egrets that perch. A few minutes later disembarked a lens migration across the Lake by about a thousand cormorants to perhaps one metre from the surface of the water. Here are the masters of Earth as they seemed in old sci-fi classic "PLANET of the APES" BECAME the TITLE of THIS REVIEW

  • One of the spaces which must visit tourist visit to Valencia. Near the city and in a quiet and very nice area.

  • If you want to see something spectacular, take a walk in boat by the lagoon at sunset. Explanations of Maria and her husband, the boatmen, the way to make you see the surroundings of vegetation and birds is very cultural and entertaining
