With a wide variety of fauna and flora, hikers will enjoy different routes to discover it, as well as observe landscapes of holm oaks and rocks so typical of the Iberian landscape. The Tajo and its tributary, the Tiétar, give the aquatic touch to this Park and in the quartzite there are large cliffs that make home to the wonderful colonies of griffon vultures, and other birds such as the peregrine falcon, the Bonelli's eagle, and the Royal Owl.

It contains a biodiversity of wonderful fauna and flora, and acts as a natural border between Spain and Portugal. While walking through its paths you can admire some of these endangered species, such as the Iberian imperial eagle, the black stork or the crayfish. But in addition to animals and vegetation, you will see much more, because wherever you look there will be a story that will have traces of another time.
