Stunning National Park. My main reason for visiting was to see the vultures and I got to see them in abundance!! The scenery in the park is beautiful. Also on the way into the park, stop at the car park near the castle and walk up to it to take I some breathtakingly amazing panoramas. There are some walks throughout... More

But we were rewarded greatly, unbelievable for the big raptures, vultures, Eagles, but lots of small birds, we even saw wild pigs and wild... More

We drove up to within 100 yards of the castle. The castle sits on the top of a ridge and the views are absolutely breathtaking in all directions. The view of the birds is much better off the main road. There are plenty of benches to sit on and birdwatch for hours. We enjoyed our visit to this park in... More

Some spots are not to be missed whatsoever and that includes the view point from Salto del Gitano where spotting Cinereous and Griffon Vultures is granted at any time... More

The park's visitors' office is staffed by efficient and pleasant people. Plenty of options for excursions of various difficulties, over well maintained paths and clear sign posting.

Do visit this beautiful natural park, about an hours drive from Caceres. Parking at the village of Villareal de San Carlo, there is a helpful information centre which gives little walking maps and driving routes with special points of interest. We chose the shortest hike, about 7.5km as it was a very hot day. You do need sturdy footwear since... More
