Located close to Trujillo, with the Tajo river running through it, the Monfragüe National Park is unique. It was declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 2003. Monfragüe takes its name from the Romans, who called it Mons Fragorum, the fragmented mountain. It is a typically Iberian landscape that provides a home for the Park’s incredibly diverse flora and fauna. Cork oaks, wild olives, and holm oak trees are surrounded the national park.

The most popular birdwatching spot for visitors is the Salto del Gitano. This is a 300-meter cliff above the Tajo river.
