The Monfragüe National Park, located in the province of Cáceres, became a national park in 2007.
Its 17 thousand hectares of treasures, forests, oaks and bushes house a great variety of birds and animals that live in freedom and protected. Still, on several occasions, groups of environmentalists have reported cases of illegal hunting.
The park is a valley where the Tiétar River flows into the Tajo River, giving it new energies in its path toward Lisbon. Besides its ecosystem and orography, it is interesting to notice the great rocks that give the place an interesting look.
Despite the magnitude of the park, you don’t have to worry yourself with a compass, since there are signaled routes, paths, guides and monitors that are available to accompany groups along the park.
