Monfrague Park Trails
Central Spain Spain

Riding from the lovely town of Trujillo, you will head North to the Monfragüe National Park, the largest and best preserved Mediterranean forest in the World.

The Monfragüe National Park is a true haven for Mediterranean flora and birdlife. Located close to Trujillo, with the Tajo river running through it, this National Park was declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 2003. It takes its name from the Romans, who called it Mons Fragorum, the fragmented mountain. It features a typically Iberian landscape that provides a home for the Park’s incredibly diverse flora and fauna.
The most popular birdwatching spot for visitors is the “Salto del Gitano”, a 300 meter cliff above the Tajo river. There, you can admire the black storks, vultures, Egyptian vultures and imperial eagles.
The Park is also the site of Monfragüe Castle, an Arab construction. People have left many other marks on Monfragüe over the ages, with many prehistoric cave paintings.
 
This ride starts and finishes in Trujillo, famous for its monuments and because it was the birthplace of Francisco Pizarro and his brothers, conquerors of Peru, as well as of Francisco de Orellana, who accomplished the first descent of the Amazon River.
