Ecotourism in Spain

 
 
 
 
 

Sierra de Gredos Regional Park is located in Castile-León on the mid-west region of Spain.

The forest cover of the Sierra de Gredos includes extensive stands of the famous Scots pine. Castile Leon (Castilla y Leon) and Sierra de Gredos offer a wide range of of wildlife. The region is home to endangered species like the wolf or the brown bear which are now the subject of protective regulations intended to preserve mammal species historically pursued by man.

The emblematic mountain goat inhabits the mountains of Gredos, while the Cordillera Cantabrica harbors deer, wild boar and urogallo that is a large wildfowl akin to the capercaillie.

Avian species include the imperial eagle, the tawny vultures of Río Lobos Canyon and storks that winter in Villafáfila.

What actually makes for such varied and spectacular scenery is the majestic heterogeneity of the mountain ranges that form the Region’s natural boundaries. The permanent snowy caps of the highest peaks provide a background of eternal beauty as well as the middle zones are populated by rich woodlands following the wonderful rivers.
