Let Badajoz surprise you
It is the largest province in Spain and, also, a great unknown. Located in the south of Extremadura, this region of contrasts is made up of Mediterranean forest, dehesas of oaks and mountains. Among its natural spaces, rich and varied, highlights the Cornalvo Natural Park. The best way to know all of them is to do it through the activities in nature in Badajoz.
Throughout the province there are six large reservoirs in which it is possible to perform various types of water activities: sailing, kayaking, etc. Among them, the Orellana reservoir stands out, because it contains the first freshwater beach to get a blue flag in Spain.
This reservoir also belongs to the list of wetlands of international importance. Next to the Sierra de la Pela, this area of lagoons and plains is one of the favorite enclaves for bird watching, thanks to its great biodiversity.
The Cornalvo Natural Park is also an ideal place to devote to birding. In this landscape the pasture abounds with oaks and cork oaks and there are up to 155 species of birds; including a relatively scarce one in Europe, the black stork. In addition to this, other activities can be done, such as walking, riding or cycling routes.
