Spain’s National Parks are a comfort for body and spirit. Spain is an incredibly beautiful country, as anyone who has ever visited Spain surely would agree on! From the long beaches to the little white villages – beauty is everywhere in this country. 

But maybe it is little known that Spain also has 52 biosphere reserves, one of the biggest number in the entire world. Many of them are well known, but in celebration of World Wildlife Day, today on March 3, travel agent Rumbo has created a list of four of them, that are almost unknown.

  1. Caldera de Taburiente on the island of la Palma is a gem of beauty. It was created by volcanic eruptions and is 1,500 meters deep and eight kilometres in diameter. It has a large number of underground torrents and streams and has a vast variety of wildlife.
  2. Saja-Besaya Natural Park, in the north of Spain in the Cantabria area, is 24,500 hectares national park with more than 120 species of mammals and birds.
  3. La Breña and Marismas de Barbate is a small natural park in Andalusía. It stretches over 5,000 hectares and has five different eco-systems.
  4. The Lagoons of Ruidera in Albacete and Ciudad Real is formed by 15 lagoons that constitute the Alto Guadiana valley, perfect for biking, kayaking, paddle surfing or hiking.
