On May 24, Dolores celebrated Natural Parks Day with a special tribute to one of the most iconic natural treasures of the Vega Baja: the “El Hondo” Natural Park.

Dolores shares a close bond with this natural area, located just a few kilometres away, and it’s easily accessible via cycling routes that offer glimpses of the charm of the Vega Baja Orchard.

El Hondo is the third most significant wetland in Spain, and local residents are fortunate to host endangered species that find sanctuary in the park, such as the Gray Teal, the White-headed Duck, the Brown Pochard, and the Horned Coot.
