Just a relatively short drive north from the A384 and very close to the A92, the nature reserve at the lagoon, Laguna De Fuente De Piedra, populated by several thousand pink flamingos is well worth breaking your journey for if you are passing by. The...More

If you are there you have to try that lake. On the big lake there are hundreds of bird (incl. flamingos) but they are so far away. If you are lucky next to the road on the small lake you can find a small population....More

This large lake harbours many bird species, among which flamingos. There is a visitor center and some trails, from which you can spot birds, but you need strong binoculars. Because of the prolonged drought in Spain the lake was very low and reduced in size....More

My interest in visiting the locality of Fuente de Piedra was to visit the donkey refuge on the outskirt. This is easily combined with a visit to the lagoon which is a short distance away. It provides the opportunity to give a little love to...More

The laguna was almost dried out when we were there, so we just saw a few flamengos. We took the 21km-drive around the salt lake and got some nice additional views. Take your 15 mins for all the information provided by the visitors center.

Beautiful countryside, however the main purpose of visit was to see the flamingos in the lake. Was pretty sure water levels would be high due to wet winter in Andalucia, this was not the case however which meant flamingos were at far side of lake...More

A delightful couple of hours. The viewing stations dotted around the park were excellent and we got to see quite a few of the flamingos themselves. Can be over run at times with primary school trips so you might need to be strategic and flexible...More
