What to Expect
Doñana is a natural space located in Andalusia and protected by the Spanish government. In 1994, it was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Due to its privileged geographic location between two continents and its close proximity to the meeting point of the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea, the Strait of Gibraltar, you can observe more than 300 different species of birds per year in Doñana, since it is a stopover, birthing, and wintering spot for thousands of European and African species (both water and land).
This land of contrasts presents a mosaic of different landscapes where a large variety of plants and animals co-exist. Its vast extension and strategic location converts this natural space into an important wintering location for migrating birds. Doñana is one of the most important wetlands in all of Europe.
Doñana is a privileged location given the variety of its existing landscapes. The Coto del Rey, the Abalario y the Algaida pine forest are home to an exhaustive list of pine trees and other Mediterranean brush that create an adequate habitat for the emblematic Iberian lynx and other diverse species of predators, such as the imperial eagle.
The devotion to the Virgin of El Rocío is inseparable from its natural environment, the natural reserve. The very legend about the discovery of the image of the Virgin Mary is located in the shepherd’s wanderings of the expanse of Doñana.
Meeting point: Calle Carretas #10 (next to the Rocío shrine)
