The park is easy to navigate. I am so glad that we included this location on our recent birding trip. We met birders from all over Europe. This proved to me that Monfrague is a must see for a Spain birding trip. You cannot usually...More

Love the place & spent a day at Vulture Rock & a day at the Embalsa. Road system has improved but still pretty hairy in places. Certainly improvements for visitors. Unfortunately no deer, kingfishers or azure-winged magpies this time. The road to the Embalsa is...More
