Protected nature reserve, approximately 80 kilometers, which includes part of the provinces of Zamora and Salamanca and borders Portugal. Unesco declared it a Biosphere Reserve under the name of Iberian Plateau.

Its peculiar orographic unevenness, with more than 200 meters in some areas, Douro’s great amount of water volume and its mouths make it an ideal area for hydrographic exploitation with numerous dams and reservoirs.

Its Mediterranean-type microclimate, generated in this fabulous space, has given rise to the presence of animal species and vegetables typical of the Mediterranean region such as rockroses, lavender ... In addition, in its characteristic ravines, olive trees, vines, junipers bloom and even orange trees. A valley fitted, sheltered from the wind and with lots of sunlight that make that the average temperature is mild, with no frost, which helps the great abundance of this type of Mediterranean species.

It should be noted that, in addition, it is one of the most valuable nature reserves for wildlife throughout Europe. The precipices and the rock formations are characteristic elements of this nature reserve, where species of great faunistic value are located, such as vultures, golden eagles, black storks, Egyptian vultures or peregrine falcons, as well as the short-toed eagles, Eagle owls or choughs.

A place not to be missed.
