The absolute highlight of the magnificent Monfrague National park. Holds the park' s largest colony of Griffon Vulture (+-80 pairs) amongst other species.
A huge rockface carved out by the river Tagus. A large observation platform allows for great views and above all, one of the best birdwatching experiences in Europe. The most reliable place in the park for the endangered Black Stork, of which 3-5 pairs breed every year; look for their nest just above the water line and in the big crevice in the center of the rock face. Egyptian Vulture also breeds most years.
Follow the EX-208 for 10,5 km (from Torrejon el Rubio), then park your car at the parking just before the viewpoint (on the left side of the road). When coming from the North (Plasencia), follow the EX-208 towards Torrejon el Rubio for around 32 km.
This is the best spot in the park for Black Stork, of which there are two pairs at this site. Eurasian Black Vulture is also a regular here.
