As a region devoted to its natural medium, Extremadura has a host of resources that will whet your appetite for nature.
The excellent state of conservation of the habitat of the birds turns Extremadura into a true bird watching paradise.
The region is a real landscape of stars. Apart from its natural attractions, we have excellent conditions to get the best sky-viewing experience and a specialised sector. Monfragüe, Alqueva and Southwest mountain range have been granted a Starlight Tourist Destination certificate.
The Monfragüe National Park is a wonderful place to visit for both ornithology and Mediterranean flora.
Roman remains, local biodiversity, Mediterranean vegetation... These are just some of the attractions offered by this park, where you can lose yourself in nature very close to Mérida.
The Tagus International Nature Reserve is one of the last refuges for various threatened species native to Mediterranean woodlands. Pure flora and fauna biodiversity.
The Villuercas-Ibores-Jara Geopark is not to be missed, with its spectacular landscapes, rich biodiversity and paleontological remains.
Enjoy beautiful scenery whilst practising your favourite sport in a region that will reward you for your efforts.
